Covid-19: WHO urges Irish people to wear face coverings

The World Health Organization has said that people in Ireland should get into the habit of wearing face coverings, even if it's not mandatory to do so.

The WHO's Special Envoy on Covid-19, Dr David Nabarro, said while it is up to national governments to decide the policy on face coverings he wanted to encourage people to "take the advice super seriously and get into the habit of doing it".
