Difference Between Cloth Mask And Health Mask?
To prevent Corona Virus, …. Are masks made of cloth the effect is not as good as the operating mask that is in color so far?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know that fabric masks only work to help filter out dust, ash, and other large particles if you live in a place that has a high level of air pollution. Fabric masks are not effective at filtering out smaller particles such as bacteria or viruses (which are smaller than bacteria).
Secondly, you need to know that you are not recommended to use any type of mask (surgical mask or surgical mask, or N95 respirator) to prevent contracting the corona virus. Masks are not very effective when used by healthy people. Masks are only recommended for use by people who are sick only to prevent transmission to healthy people in the vicinity, as well as by health workers who are in contact with infectious patients. Using a mask when you are healthy will cause a decrease in the supply of masks in your country, so that people who really need a mask (people who are sick and health workers) actually can not get the masks they need.
To prevent contracting COVID-19 disease due to this corona virus, you are better advised to limit yourself to going to crowded and crowded places, keep a distance from other people, especially people who show symptoms of respiratory tract infections, avoid shake hands as much as possible, wash your hands with soap as often as possible, avoid touching your face especially with your hands that have not been washed, and avoid smoking.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
