Mankind has witnessed viral pandemics beholding the potential to annihilate millions of lives in past few centuries, but none could match the magnitude of COVID 19 which wreaked havoc on a global scale in January 2020, proving to be one the most destructive year since the emergence of modern civilization.
Physical distancing, face masks, restrictive interaction became the social norms implemented through the blunt force worldwide.
Knowing that it is close to impossible to practice 100% contactless interaction through physical distancing and restrictive socialization, face mask immerged as true saviour and a silver line in the clouds. Mask is a key measure for an individual to suppress transmission and save lives. Mask eliminates potential COVID exposure risk from an infected person regardless of their symptomatic status. People wearing masks are protected from this grave danger. Mask also helps prevent onward transmission when worn by an infected person.
As medical professionals from all over the world recommend that the mask which intended to restrict the bacterial transmission must have the following attributes:
a] It must be tested for its efficiency in a recognized lab like SITRA.
b] It should have 3 layers with Melt blown as a middle layer.
c] it must be above 50 GSM.
d] the filter must be made of original melt-blown.
e] It must be ISI or CE approved.
HOW FACE MASKS ARE TESTED?
A 3ply face mask gets tested in government-approved testing labs by a rigorous and extensive tests such as Bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) test and particle filtration efficiency (PFE) test where a bacterial projectile, staphylococcus aureus which causes the common cold is released at a 3ply mask which in size (measured in micrometres) is several times smaller compared to covid 19. If the fabric can restrict the staphylococcus virus it can definitely protect the individual from the covid transmission.
