Why wear a mask? The main method of transmission of the new coronavirus is droplet transmission. Wearing a mask can effectively block the spread of the virus. Masks are an important line of defense against respiratory infectious diseases and can reduce the risk of new coronavirus infections. The mask not only prevents the patient from spraying droplets, reducing the volume and speed of the spray, but also blocks the virus-containing droplet core and prevents the wearer from inhaling.



How to wear a mask? It is not necessary to wear masks in the open and ventilated areas of non-epidemic areas, and masks are required to enter crowded or closed public places. It is recommended to wear disposable medical masks in the open and ventilated areas where the epidemic situation is high; to enter the crowded or closed public places to wear medical surgical masks or particulate protective masks. When you have a suspected symptom to the hospital, you need to wear a particulate protective mask or a medical protective mask without an exhalation valve. Patients with underlying respiratory diseases should use protective masks under the guidance of a doctor. Infants and young children cannot wear masks, which can cause suffocation.

The masks used by healthy people can be disposed of in accordance with the requirements of domestic waste classification.
