The new virus called “coronavirus” has been spread to the world. Wearing a mask is not only for protection for ourselves but also for good actions to society. We all know that the N95 surgical mask is better than a normal surgical mask but we may not know the specifics of the reason. Here we would like to share with you two aspects of the reason, and advice on the right ways to wear a surgical mask as well.
1. N95 Surgical is thicker than normal surgical mask
The normal surgical mask consists of a waterproof layer, a layer cotton Yarns, and a filter layer. This thin and one-off mask is mostly used in hospitals or clinics. The N95 surgical mask is consists of 4 or more layers. There is one more electrostatic Meltblown layer in the N95 surgical mask. It is thicker than the normal surgical mask and better for your healthy breath protection outdoors.
2. N95 Surgical is more effective to filter dust, smog, and virus
The normal surgical mask is thin and can only filter around 70% harmful particles and virus in the air. N95 surgical mask is more effective to filter about 95% harmful particles and virus in the air, such as the dust, smog, droplet in the air. Since the new virus spread so quickly this time, we recommend you choose the N95 surgical mask for your healthy breath's sake.
3. Right ways of wearing a surgical mask
Before you open the pack and wear a new mask, you have to check if any scratch or tear on the new mask. Don’t use it if there is any damage, spot or dirt on it. Unfold the mask and put it against your face closely, with the cotton Yarns surface inside. Put the flexible string on your ears and adjust the mask to a comfortable position. Slightly tighten the small metal bar on your nose, make sure the mask is fully covered.
As the final advice, wearing a mask outdoors is a good way to cut off the new virus spread. Choose the N95 respirator mask is a better and effective way. Wash your hands with disinfectant screams and ventilate the room indoors. Don’t go to the crowd public place because it is not safe. We will say farewell to the new virus if everyone takes our advice.
