Medical Expert Dr Quince Mwabu has cautioned members of the public to desist from engaging physical exercises such as jogging while wearing face masks to avoid medical complications.

Dr Mwabu has warned that despite the need for people to wear face masks as part of preventing the spread of the coronavirus, wearing of masks while exercising could lead to breathing difficulties and other complications.

He says it is not advisable for people to run with a face mask on as this may cause lack of oxygen to the internal organs and the brain which might lead to death.

Dr Mwabu spoke to Phoenix News in an interview following the increasing number of people who have been spotted conducting physical exercises while wearing facemasks.
