Coronavirus: What are the rules for face masks or face coverings?

Posted by Juthatip

Why should we wear a face covering?

Face coverings reduce the spread of coronavirus droplets from coughs, sneezes and speaking.
They should mainly be worn to protect other people from coronavirus, rather than yourself.
When worn correctly, they should cover the nose and mouth, which are the main confirmed sources of transmission.
They can help to reduce the spread of the virus from people who are contagious, including those who have no symptoms, or are yet to develop them.
There is also evidence they can offer some protection to the wearer, although they are not a replacement for social distancing and hand-washing.


Does everyone have to wear one?

  • Some people do not have to wear a face covering. They include:
    • Children (under 11 in England or Wales, under 13 in Northern Ireland, under five in Scotland)
    • Those unable to put on or wear a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or disability
    • People for whom wearing or removing a face covering will cause severe distress
    • Anyone assisting someone who relies on lip reading to communicate

  • You can remove your mask if:
    • You need to eat, drink, or take medication
    • A police officer or other official asks you to, or for shop staff to verify your age
    • You are entering a shop to avoid harm, if you do not have a mask on you

  • Young children should not wear face masks because of the risk of choking and suffocation.

Do face coverings work?

Face coverings do not give the wearer as much protection as the masks that healthcare workers wear.
World Health Organization (WHO) advice says non-medical face coverings should be worn in public where social distancing is not possible.
They help us protect each other and reduce the spread from people who are contagious but have no symptoms, or are yet to develop symptoms.

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020.

Posted by Ratchaneewan


Salute to Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier Nobel Laureates in Chemistry 2020.

See UC Berkeley biochemist Jennifer Doudna’s waking moments after winning the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Doudna was interviewed from her Berkeley home of her co-development with colleague Emmanuelle Charpentier of CRISPR-Cas9,
a gene-editing breakthrough that has revolutionized biomedicine. Doudna is the first woman on the Berkeley faculty to win a Nobel Prize.
She and Charpentier also became the first women in history to win a Nobel in the sciences together.
This year University of California at Berkeley celebrates 150 years of Women at Berkeley.

Also noted that Berkeley celebrated two Nobel Prize wins in one week of October 2020.

New Normal Lifestyle

Posted by Juthatip


Five core ideas of Central Hygiene and Safety Master Plan are:

  • Extra Screening: Everyone must measure body temperature before entering the shopping centers and stores; Everyone must wear face masks at all times; Staffs who work closely with customers are required to wear face shields and gloves; Additional measures will be applied for delivery staffs
  • Social Distancing: Restrict the number of customers allowed at a time as for shopping centers allowing 1 person per 5 square meters and as for shops and common areas as elevators-escalators-bathrooms, 1-2 meters distance is required; Arrange a queuing system and waiting area for the stores and delivery staffs; Apply 5 Shields: Face Shield / Food Shield / Table Shield / Counter Shield / Cashier Shield; Increase awareness and emphasize practical guidelines to everyone
  • Safety Tracking: Track employees’ health and travel records for the past 14 days prior to the re-opening and before starting work each day; For takeaway food, the name and temperature of the food providers must be labeled on the package
  • Extra Cleaning: Clean every touch point every 30 minutes in the shopping centers and stores; Use disinfectant solution after shopping centers close and implement a ‘Big Cleaning’ every week; Provide a disinfectant spraying service on shopping bags before leaving; Clean all food center card and parking card; Special measures for family lounge, prayer room, fitting rooms, classrooms and clean every equipment before and after use
  • Touchless Experience: Encourage Cashless and E-payments; Provide coins bag at the cashiers; Assign doormen; Assign staffs to press the elevator for customers (Buttonless)

Getting your workplace ready for COVID-19

  • Simple ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in your workplace:

    • Promote regular and thorough hand-washing by employees, contractors, and customers
    • Promote good respiratory hygiene in the workplace
    • Advise employees and contractors to consult national travel advice before going on business trips
    • Brief your employees, contractors, and customers that if COVID-19 starts spreading in your community anyone with even a mild cough or low-grade fever (37.3 C or more)needs to stay at home. They should also stay home (or work from home) if they have had to take simple medications, such as paracetamol/acetaminophen, ibuprofen or aspirin, which may mask symptoms of infection

PubMed and PubMed Central- CGI Most Popular

Posted by Ratchaneewan

The Single Citation Matcher

The most poplar resources for CGI library users in 2019 is PubMed. This is a result from the library survey during June 10-30,2019,and from previous surveys.
Known among our users that “PubMed is free and comprises more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature from MedLine, life science jiurnals, and online books.
Citations include links to full-text from PubMed Central and publisher we sites.”
Finding articles from PubMed has been fairly easy. However, user may look for a specific article and needs not to screen from many citations
as results normally displayed from regular search from PubMed. Single Citation Matcher is the function that allows user to find the article quickly.
The Single Citation Matcher is a “fill-in-the-blank” form that allows you to enter partial journal article citation information to locate that citation.
