We have seen many types of masks since December 2019. Like cloth mask, surgical mask, N95 mask, KN95 mask. The purpose is to prevent from COVID attacks.
According to new studies, the type of material and duration of the mask play vital roles in their effectiveness. The research says if 70 percent of the public wore face masks consistently, COVID-19 pandemic could be stopped.
The highly effective facemask like surgical masks with their actual life, could minimize the pandemic and even if it will use consistently then it could completely vanish the COVID pandemic. Even cloth masks which are actually less effective to stop droplet spread, could also slow down COVID spread.
Another noticeable point mentioned in their studies that is related to mask wearing duration. As lot of cases reported in which people wore mask for whole day, which brought breathing issues in many patients.
”There could be some relation between breathing resistance and the flow resistance of the face mask which will need to be studied for a face mask-wearing interval,” said Heow Pueh Lee, another co-author of the study.
The basic need is to understand the actual problem for moving towards the possible solutions. For now everybody should wear a mask whenever going in public places, there is no need to wear facemask in your whole day.
