WHO says that health workers have the right to "assume overall responsibility to ensure that all necessary preventive and protective measures are taken
to minimize occupational safety and health risks". Can I please suggest all relevant departments and organisations to allow and encourage health workers to wear face masks at workplace based on the facts below:

1. Coronavirus is such a highly infectious disease as many people are infectious but have no symptoms at all for up to fourteen days before they get tested positive of coronavirus.

2. Every medical service provider has more and more patients and visitors every day especially under current situation.

3. Unlike other people,  health workers can not avoid close contact with people when providing service to them and these people may carry virus. 

4. Wearing face masks is an essential way to protect Respiratory infections and save lives.

5. Save health workers lives to save more lives.
