DISCLAIMER about FABRIC FACE MASKS:
Wearing a face mask stops people from becoming infected in two ways:
1) By blocking most airborne droplets filled with viruses from being inhaled.
2) By stopping the wearer from touching their own mouths and noses.
Studies have shown that medical professionals using surgical face masks correctly get 80% fewer infections than those who don’t.
So why the mixed messages?
First, because the protection only comes when the masks are used properly.
They must be put on clean, taken off carefully, and paired with rigorous hand washing, and the discipline not to touch the face.
Second, because gaps around the masks and between fibers, even in commercial surgical masks, are too large to block all viruses.
Sneeze and cough droplets are usually between 7 and 100 microns.
Surgical masks and some cloth masks will block 7-micron particles.
The COVID19 virus particles are 0.06 to 0.14 microns.
Bottom Line: our face masks are not meant to replace the surgical face mask, it is a contingency plan for those who have no avail to surgical mask in the market. These are non surgical medical masks that have not been FDA approved. We make no medical claim with regards to their usage.
Proper use of a surgical mask is still the best way to prevent virus infection(s). It is not medical rated but good enough to filter out those hazardous particles and bad smells.
