Free face masks from Cosway Farmasi

In view of the worsening haze situation, Cosway Farmasi will be giving out 100,000 free masks to the public. These can be collected from our pharmacy branches in the affected areas.

High-risk groups (the elderly, the sick, those suffering from heart diseases and respiratory problems, pregnant women & children) will be prioritised and only one (1) mask will be given to each individual in the interest of fair distribution.

We ask members of the public to heed the Health Ministry's directive to reduce unnecessary exposure to the haze by staying indoors, especially those in the above high-risk category.

In addition, please monitor the severity of the air quality in your local area (API level) and see a health professional immediately if you are suffering from the ill-effects of the haze. Masks will be available while stocks last.

Please visit www.coswaypharmacy.com/my/locations for a full list of our 130 outlets nationwide.
