Hygiene face masks are recommended for use in any situation where protection of the respiratory system is required.
Do Face Masks work against the Coronavirus?
FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3 Masks are effective at preventing droplets of moisture from passing through their filters. If someone sneezes who has a Coronavirus infection, wearing a mask should provide some protection against being infected. While it isn't a guarantee that you won't get sick, wearing a face mask provides better protection from Coronavirus.
Wearing a medical mask is one of the prevention measures to limit spread of certain respiratory diseases, including 2019-nCoV, in affected areas. However, the use of a mask alone is insufficient to provide the adequate level of protection and other equally relevant measures should be adopted. If masks are to be used, this measure must be combined with hand hygiene and other IPC measures to prevent the human-to-human transmission of 2019-nCov.
What else can I do to protect myself from Coronavirus?
Face masks should not be the only method of avoiding the Coronavirus.The following are some things you should consider in conjunction with wearing a face mask:
- Cover your mouth with your inner elbow or tissue paper when coughing or sneezing. Discard tissue paper in the bin after using.
- Wash your hands thoroughly
- Social Distancing
- Maintain distance from anyone exhibiting symptoms such as coughing or sneezing
- Refrain from touching your eyes, mouth or nose
How do I use a face mask?
Proper use of face masks is critical for those who wish to avoid being sick. Almost counter-intuitively, wearing a face mask may actually cause an infection if not worn properly. This is because people who wear a face mask are more likely to continually touch their face. It is important that, if you are wearing a face mask, to avoid touching the mask after it has been put in place over your head.
