Master class from the chief surgeon of the United States: how to make a mask from improvised tools

US Surgeon General Jerome Adams told how you can make a mask from improvised tools at home; a video on Facebook was published by the US Centers for disease control and prevention.

Adams offers a mask made of a t-shirt, old scarf, or towel as an alternative to gauze bandages.

US President Donald Trump yesterday appealed to citizens with a recommendation not to buy medical masks, to leave them for medical institutions and not to create a shortage.

In the video, the doctor shows how to properly fold the cut-out part of the t-shirt and secure it with hair bands on both sides to get a mask that protects against coronavirus infection.
