Today, in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, medical masks have become relevant and even a mandatory attribute for going out. However, did you know that over 95% of people wear their masks incorrectly? Let's see why.
The fact is that the mask consists of two layers - the green layer is treated with a special substance that neutralizes microbes and prevents them from entering the respiratory tract. And the white layer serves as a filter.
So, if you are healthy and just want to protect yourself, the mask should be worn with the green side facing you to prevent infection. If you yourself are a carrier of the virus, the mask should be put on with the white side towards you, so as not to harm others. By the way, the validity period of any mask is only a few hours. After this, the impregnating agent loses its protective qualities.
We hope the information was useful to you and good luck!
