Covid Mask

HOW TO USE MASK MORE EFFECTIVELY IN THE TIMES OF COVID-19

Using a mask is a vital step that can avoid contracting and spreading COVID-19. But not all masks offer the same level of protection. One needs to consider how well it fits, how well it filters the air, and how many layers it has. There are many options available when choosing a mask. Do choose a mask that:

  • Two or more layers of washable, breathable cloth are recommended. But avoid fabric that makes it hard to breathe.
  • Make sure your nose, mouth, and chin are covered.
  • Make sure it doesn’t have any gaps and fits snugly to the sides of your face.
  • Make sure the mask fits comfortably over the nose and mouth, as well as under the chin, with no gaps around the sides.
  • When the weather is cold, a scarf can be used to cover the mask. But it is no substitute for masks.

Some Of The Myths Around Masks

  • This is a misconception that wearing a mask would affect the level of co2 level in the air you breathe.
  • Cloth masks and surgical masks do not fit tightly across the face. When you breathe out or talk, CO2 escapes into the air through the mask. CO2 molecules are tiny enough to penetrate through the mask material.

Since COVID-19 virus-carrying respiratory droplets are much larger than CO2, they cannot easily pass through a properly designed and worn mask.
