GENEVA: The World Health Organization (WHO) voiced concern on Monday that the wearing of medical masks by the general public could exacerbate the shortage for health workers who are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lockdowns in many places are proving effective in dampening spread of the virus, but any lifting of restrictions requires a calibrated, step-wise approach based on data, it said.

“Masks alone cannot stop the pandemic, countries must continue to find, isolate and treat every case and trace every contact,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference. He announced that Lady Gaga would direct a televised live concert with other top entertainers on April 18 to raise funds to help fight the pandemic.
