Resumen

Resumen: Con el surgimiento del SARS-CoV-2 en Wuhan (China) hacia finales del 2019, el mundo se ha enfrentado a una nueva pandemia, que hasta el momento supera ya los 5 millones de infectados, llamada COVID-19. Al no existir un tratamiento eficaz contra la infección, las medidas de salud pública han obtenido una gran relevancia para la contención del virus. Entre ellas destacan el lavado de manos y el distanciamiento social. El uso generalizado de mascarillas en el ámbito comunitario por su parte ha sido una medida de salud pública que, hasta el momento, no ha sido del todo adoptada por la comunidad internacional debido a la escasa evidencia científica con la que se dispone. En esta revisión se expone la evidencia científica actual en cuanto la eficacia de esta medida para mitigar la propagación de esta y otras pandemias. Así como los beneficios y riesgos que de ella emanan.
