Can wearing a face mask protect you from virus?
Wearing a face mask is certainly not an iron-clad guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, can penetrate masks. However, masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus, and some studies have estimated a roughly fivefold protection versus no barrier alone (although others have found lower levels of effectiveness).
If you are likely to be in close contact with someone infected, a mask cuts the chance of the disease being passed on. If you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, or have been diagnosed, wearing a mask can also protect others. So masks are crucial for health and social care workers looking after patients and are also recommended for family members who need to care for someone who is ill – ideally both the patient and carer should have a mask.
However, masks will probably make little difference if you’re just walking around town or taking a bus so there is no need to bulk-buy a huge supply.

Can a face mask protect you from a virus?
Wearing a face mask is a common sight in Korea during the COVID-19 outbreak. Due to the overwhelming demand, last week the South Korean government started to ration two masks per person per week, as a drastic measure to address the supply fiasco.
The face masks most commonly used are disposable ones, originally made for filtering out up to 94 or 95 percent of fine dust, referred to as N94 or N95 masks.
A KAIST research team announced that they have developed a nano-filter that maintains excellent filtering efficiency even after hand washing through the development of proprietary technology that aligns nanofibers with a diameter of 100~500 nm in orthogonal or unidirectional directions. This reusable nano-filtered face mask could help to relieve the challenges arising from the supply shortage of face masks.
What's also new about these masks is that they use replacable filters which can be disposed of and changed with a new one. Washing the mask and changing the filter tackles supply problem since the masks are being reused.
How to use face mask for optimal protection
Although surgical face masks and respirators have been studied for decades, in hospitals, under surgical conditions and in pandemics, questions abound regarding their actual usefulness.
Some rules apply for all face masks, whether you are using a simple surgical mask or any other specialized mask.
Every mask you plan on using must be undameged. If there is even slightly damage throw the mask away. If it looks ok pull the loop around the ears, expand the mask over the nose and chin and make sure it has a snug fit. Do not touch the surface of the mask when putting it on, while wearing it, or when taking it off.
Replace the mask if it is soiled with bodily fluids, either on the inside (by the wearer) or outside (through public exposure).
How different types of masks help you protect yourself from Covid-19
Or known as medical masks, they are designed to protect nose and mouth from droplets, splashes and sprays that could contain germs. They also filter our large particles in the air. They help in prevention of Covid-19 by eliminating saliva, droplets and respiratory secretions of the mask’s wearer. We offer surgical masks for sale, packed in boxes of 50 pieces.
These masks offer more protection than surgical masks since they filter out both large and small particles from the air. They’re designed to filter out up to 95% of very small particles. Some of them can have one-way valves to make them easier to breathe trough.
Surgical and N95 masks are often in short supply and people must manage for themselves. Since any mask is better than no mask cloth masks are recommended as a last resort. Cloth masks don’t have fine filters and materials like surgical masks or N95 masks, but can help in reducing the spread of droplets and saliva. Their most important advantage is that they can be washed and reused. Using cloth masks can help in reducing the spread of coronavirus.
These masks are easy and cheap to make from common materials or even old T-shirts. They can have several layers of fabric for better protection. Check out our offer of standard cloth masks.
Cloth masks with additional filters
On our website you may find cloth masks with a pocket where you can place a 3-layer filter with a layer of activated carbon. This makes cloth mask much more effective in filtering out particles and helping to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Masks are washable and filters are disposable. After use, simply remove old filter, wash the mask and insert the new filter.
How to wear a cloth face mask
Cloth (or any other) face masks are recommended to be worn in public where social distancing measures are difficult to keep, like in malls, subways, busses, grocery stores or in similar situations. Many governments recommend using a mask at all times while in public or while in enclosed areas.
How to use a mask:
- Place the mask over your mouth and nose. Use ear loops and make sure it fits.
- Don’t touch the mask while you’re wearing it. If you do touch it please wash or disinfect your hands.
- Remove it by taking the ear loops of. Be careful not to touch the front of the mask or your face. Wash or disinfect your hands immediately after removing the mask.
- Cloth masks can be washed and reused. Wash them with soap and water in washing machine.
