Why Masks Are Our Best Defence For Coronavirus?
It has been more than four months since the world has come to a standstill because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has had a large effect on all the industries resulting in huge losses. People have been confined to their homes, stepping outdoors has become an option only for necessary commodities, and even while doing so, the Government has made it regulatory for everyone to wear masks.
Such a situation can give rise to an important question, are masks our best defence for coronavirus? In this blog we’ll let you know the importance of masks moving forward helping us to fight against the Covid-19 virus.
Importance of Masks
Research has found that the coronavirus spreads via micro-droplets when an infected person sneezes, coughs or breathes and can enter the body through eyes, mouth and nose. So it makes sense that donning a face mask when outdoors has been made regulatory.
The WHO (World Health Organisation) has also recommended certain other precautionary measures such as washing your hands regularly, keeping safe distance between two people and avoid touching your face continuously.
Face masks do help stop the spread of this virus, but other hygienic measures are key to avoid getting it in the first place. According to the fact that coronavirus can spread only when an infected person sneezes or coughs, it may also seem logical that only the infected wear the masks, which is not the case at all.
The issue with this virus is that the infected person can spread the virus to other people before even being diagnosed by it. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that whenever we go outdoors, we wear our mask and maintain safe distance from all the other people.
The next question that arises is which type of mask you should select for yourself. Basically there are three main types of masks, Surgical Masks, Regular Masks, and N95 Respirators. Now if you’re not working in the healthcare industry and require a mask for your general and daily use, we recommend you to go ahead and choose regular face masks.
They are made for the general public, protecting them from respiratory diseases, including the Covid-19 virus among other things such as dust and other pollutants. The major difference between them and other types of masks is the fit, it is a bit looser as compared to them.
