So, we have seen a lot of people wearing masks over the past few weeks. While wearing masks is not a foolproof solution against the coronavirus, people across the globe have been hoarding up surgical masks and driving up prices. Masks were reportedly sold out at most places and even where they were still in stock, they were being sold at Rs. 500 a pop until a couple of days back when the Government of India declared masks and sanitizers as essential items for the next 100 days. This means that states can regulate the production, distribution and pricing of these items so as to avoid hoarding and black-marketing.
Now, let’s get to the main point of this article. Some people, who were tired of the price surge, did not wait for the governments to act and came up with their own ingenious mask designs. Here is a quick list.
