Masks still not compulsory, says minister

Three situations are needed to be looked into prior to implementing the mandatory use of face masks in the country, spanning from the user, the state of the society and the density of the population, and the presence of community spread. This was said by Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar in response to a question on his perspective following a number of countries implementing the mandatory use of face masks for its citizens, at a press conference at the Al-‘Afiah Hall of the Ministry of Health yesterday.
