Good day!

Please verify this statement.

He shared that the IATF has discussed the idea of non-masking outdoors but experts told them it is still best to err on the side of caution.
"And it is an unrefutable fact that the mask is the most effective way to prevent transmission of Covid-19," Dizon added.

I would be grateful to receive a response on this the soonest. The statement seemed very sure and now it takes already over 1 month to show proof?!

To overcome a situation like this crisis we are in right now, the government should show honesty and transparency in any of its decision. One should also take responsibility if statements are inaccurate.
