Pakistan coronavirus: Concerns grow over use of low-quality masks

In Pakistan’s poorer neighbourhoods, medically approved face-masks are a luxury many cannot afford.

More than 100,000 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Pakistan.

Much of the population cannot afford quality face-masks, so some are resorting to buying cheap informally made versions or making their own, which do not provide the level of protection they need.
