WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday revised its guidance for Americans on wearing masks, recommending wearing “the most protective mask possible,” although the agency has not requested national use of N95 masks.

The CDC clarified on its website “that people can choose respirators like N95s and KN95s, including removing concerns related to a lack of supplies for N95s.” He added that citizens should “wear the most protective mask they can, that fits well and that you will wear consistently.”

The CDC said that “while all masks and respirators provide some level of protection, properly fitted respirators provide the highest level of protection.”

Cases of Covid-19 in the US have soared and more Americans are opting for higher-grade protection.

The United States reported 1.35 million new coronavirus infections on Monday, beating the global record for daily cases in any country. The Ômicron variant is now estimated to be responsible for 98.3% of the total new cases circulating in the country, according to the CDC.
