The actor came up with an initiative urging people to make their own DIY masks at home, leaving the N95 masks for the professionals who need them.

Pulkit wrote in his caption, "Please leave surgical or N95 masks for doctors & volunteers, our frontline warriors! It’s very easy to make. Washable & reusable."

The N95 masks are designed for a close fit and help block 95% of test particles. Therefore they are essential to the people who are treating the virus, people at home do not need the mask.
