    Could the Govt make good quality face masks freely available at an affordable price ? Even well known pharmacies are selling disposable masks at Rs 85/- per mask . Although employers were requested to provide masks at their cost to employees, this is not happening. As much as wearing a mask is important, it must be ensured that the masks are of the required qaulity. If not the whole purpose of wearing a mask is lost.
