Who shouldn’t wear a mask? Everyone wear a mask to prevent epidemics, right?
That sounds crazy or even weird, but there are people who shouldn’t be wearing masks in reality. I never deny the important role of the mask, but you know, nothing is always right in all circumstances and nothing is absolutely absolute. The same goes for wearing a mask.
First of all, let me discover the interesting things about the mask that you are considering to be boring. You know, at present, the covid-19 epidemic is happening complicatedly around the world and many medical organizations, scientists have shown that wearing a mask and washing hands regularly helps to reduce infecting this disease considerably. So masks now seem like an indispensable accessory when we go out, meet people, go to the office, or even take the dog for a walk every morning. Based on that demand, there are now a lot of masks sold on the internet.
But have you ever wondered if you are wearing the mask in the right way, at the right time and how it protects you? Let me show you!
First of all, how are the normal medical masks made? Non-woven medical masks usually have 3 layers with 3 different uses. The outer layer has water-repellent properties, effectively prevents droplets from splashing out when the patient sneezes, coughs, or breathes hard.
The middle layer works to prevent droplets from splattering and filter dust, bacteria. It can be said that this is the class that determines the quality of the 3-layer medical mask. The “standard” filter must allow air to easily pass, creating ventilation for the user, but must be compact enough to filter dust or bacteria with extremely small size.
The inner layer is always white, very distinctive from the outer layer. This inward-facing fabric face is close to the face skin, so it must be pure and smooth, without ruffled fibers, not to cause discomfort. Besides, the innermost layer needs to be water permeable to absorb sweat, creating comfort for the user.
What about the damn corona virus? Corona virus has a size of about 150-200 nm (nanometer) and Influenza A virus has a size of 80-120 nm, these viruses mainly reside in large saliva droplets. According to a 2013 study: large droplets of saliva are usually between 75-360 micrometers (1 micrometer = 1000 nanometers), so this saliva can be easily captured by a medical mask. usually with the ability to efficiently filter particles larger than 5 micrometers.
So it can be seen that wearing a mask regularly and properly can completely protect you from the corona virus also known as covid-19 or SARS-Co-2. We have many masks with a very nicely printed anti-covid-19 design on our website. Those masks really surprised me about the current mask fashion.
And here’s how to properly wear a mask according to the CDC:
1. How to wear a mask correctly?
Wash hands before wearing a mask.
Place the mask over your nose and mouth and keep it firmly under your chin.
Try to get the mask to fit the sides of your face.
Make sure you can breathe easily.
The CDC does not recommend the use of respirators or fabric masks with breathing valves or vents to control the source of infection.
2. Wear a Mask to Protect Others.
Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect others in case you are infected with COVID-19 without showing symptoms.
Wear masks in public places when around people who do not live in your home, especially if you have difficulty maintaining six feet of distance from others.
Wear masks properly for maximum protection
Do not wear a mask around your neck or pull it above your forehead
Do not touch the mask, and, if you do, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer to disinfect
3. Remove Masks Carefully, When You Get Home.
Unscrew the lanyard on the back of the head or tense the ear strap loop
Hold only the ear-strap or lanyard
Fold the outer corners together
Put the mask in the washing machine (learn more about washing it)
Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing it, and wash your hands immediately after removing it.
So now please consider and tell me are you wearing the mask correctly? If not, correct it immediately.
4. And Who Shouldn’t Wear a Mask?
Here is the main answer for the question of this topic. Do not wear a mask for:
Children under 2 years old. Normally, children under 2 years old rarely go out, especially in the current epidemic situation you should limit your child going out or having contact with many people. Let the epidemic go away and you can take your child for a walk wherever you want. So if your child does not go out, you should wear a mask for them. I’m sure no kid under 2 years old would like to wear a mask on their face, they will cry and scream. I don’t even like wearing a mask. So don’t make them scream with a mask on there, unless you have to expose your child to lots of strangers (which is a very stupid and bad idea for now).
Anyone who has trouble breathing. Of course, if you have trouble breathing, the mask will cause you trouble before the corona virus.
Anyone unconscious, incapacitated, or unable to remove the cloth mask. If you find anyone unconscious, incapacitated or unable to remove the cloth mask. please help them remove the mask to breathe, otherwise the mask will kill them.
Those are the three cases where you should not wear a mask, if you are not in those cases please wear a mask in public to protect yourself and everyone.
Above are all notes about wearing a mask properly, follow it exactly to protect your health and everyone.
