A presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie, has explained why President Muhammadu Buhari is rarely seen wearing a face mask, even while receiving guests at the State House.

Onochie, who is Buhari’s special assistant on social media, said the president was not flouting protocols of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) by not using masks.

She said that expert medical protocols demand that when a person is in his/her domain, they’re not required to wear face masks.

Onochie said it is those visiting Buhari at the State House that are required to put on face masks.

She tweeted on Saturday: “President @MBuhari is NOT BREAKING RULES!
Expert Medical Protocol is that if you are in your safe environment, you don’t need to wear a mask

“Those visiting you MUST wear masks to ensure they leave no droplets in your environment. Wearing of masks is mostly to protect people around us.”

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has discouraged the routine use of face masks for healthy people.

The global public health agency said it, “does not recommend that asymptomatic individuals (i.e., who do not have respiratory symptoms) in the community should wear medical masks, as currently there is no evidence that routine use of medical masks by healthy individuals prevents 2019-nCoV transmission.”
