It's proven! Masks prevent corona… and maybe for the majority, it’s the only defense one can afford to have at disposal most of the time.
The primary source of transmission of viruses along with micro airborne particles released while sneezing, coughing, and even in some amount while talking, known as aerosols are effectively restricted from entering one’s respiratory system when the mask is worn.
Within the 2nd quarter of 2020 around 7000 new small and medium scale surgical face mask manufacturers emerged in central India alone. Thus, to meet the skyrocketing demand, the newbies failed to deliver the necessary and the safety of the masses was compromised.
Considering this it is extremely important for anyone who is looking for a mask to know and understand the different types available and their effectiveness against the virus es and by that being said, here is a list of the top 5 face masks one should consider…
N stands for respiratory rating and 95 is the minimum percent efficiency of the mask. the mask is a medical-grade and by far the most effective against bacterial infection filtering almost about 95 percent of bacteria/viruses including aerosols, pollen and pollution. It perfectly seals both mouth and nose of a wearer hence, preventing inward transmission as well. This mask is usually composed of 4 or 5 layers of spun bond, melt blown, and electrostatically non-woven polypropylene material and is highly recommended to medical professionals and infected patients as well.
A disposable 3ply surgical face mask is almost equivalent to a N95 in terms of bacterial filtration. A true competitor, it is second safest option available to health care workers and common public. A disposable surgical Mask is a cost effective, convenient and user - friendly option to its more costly N-95 sibling. The efficiency of a Three-ply mask composed of same material as N-95 ranges between 93 to 96 percent.
The filtering face piece known as FFP is European term for a respiratory mask and is most commonly used in UK, France Italy and Germany. The FPP masks comes in series of FPP1, FPP2 and FPP3 ranging the efficiency percentage between 80% to 90%. It also helps isolate suspended particles in air and prevents from dust, pollen and pollution.
ACTIVATED CARBON MASK
Ranging between 40 to 50 GSM, this is another common type of mask used worldwide and can generally been seen in carbon black color. The activated carbon mask is not intended for protection from viruses and other harmful bacteria. It is used for odder prevention and can filtered dust particles and pollution to a certain extend.
A DIY (do it yourself) cloth mask is the most common of all. Used throughout the year by millions for protection from dust and pollution is not suitable for protection against harmful viruses and bacteria and hence, one must not consider this as an alterna tive to n95 or a 3ply surgical mask during the times of pandemic.
