It said face coverings were meant to protect against inadvertent transmission of coronavirus to others if the wearer has it asymptomatically, rather than to protect the wearer.

"How people can not wear masks - that to me is even disrespectful", New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

"If we can use a face covering that may reduce the probability of transmitting onwards. we're recommending that people use a face covering on their nose or mouth when they have close contact which they cannot avoid in a closed space".

So you can do your part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and help others in need at the same time. But if you're in a city or other more populated area where you're more likely to cross paths with other folks, you should wear a facial covering, or at least bring one in case you need it. Carry your mask in a clean paper bag rather than stuffing it into a pocket.

Britons are now being asked to cover their face when in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not possible, such as in shops or on public transport, the Government has said in a new document.

The CDC is also advising that cloth masks be worn in public to reduce the spread of the virus that causes the COVID-19 by those who have it yet may not be aware that they do.

Trump said he did not wear a mask during a tour on Tuesday of a Honeywell International Inc in Arizona after consulting the company's chief executive, despite requirements at the plant that workers wear them.

During the Rose Garden event, Trump stood in front of banners which read "American leads the world in testing". President Trump tried to end the topic by moving on to another reporter but Jiang kept seeking his response.

What level of protection do I need?

Hand hygiene especially is just as important as before - so washing your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds when you get home.

The organisation's advice says you should wear a mask for two main reasons.

COVID-19 can be spread directly by droplets from coughs, sneezes, and speaking.

"If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly". Cloth face coverings should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face be secured with ties or ear loops, include multiple layers of fabric allow for breathing without restriction, be able to be laundered, and machine dried without damage or change to shape.

Medical masks should be reserved for healthcare workers.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) says the amended guidance is based on advice from the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) after consideration of the latest scientific evidence which suggests face coverings can help reduce the risk of transmission in some circumstances. Here's a few guides you can use.
