KN95 Face Mask

Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, the need to wear facemasks has become indisputable. To better understand the need for protective masks, we need to understand how the virus is transmitted from person to person.  The coronavirus is transmitted through normal breathing and speech through the exhalation of respiratory droplets when coughing or through close contact with an infected person. That’s why it’s important to maintain a high level of hygiene and wear face masks. When most of us want to purchase a face mask to ensure face protection, what is most important to us is the filtering ability of the half-face mask and how it prevents the inhalation of particles into the lungs. These particles include not only coronavirus but also other viruses and bacteria, such as seasonal flu, swine flu (H1N1), SARS, etc. In the market, you can find many types of masks, such as surgical masks, dust masks, full face masks (such as face shield masks), N95 masks, KN95 masks, etc., and you may be confused in choosing the one that suits you best. The good news is that the KN95 face mask can filter out 95% of hazardous particles.

KN95 face mask: How to wear?

In order to properly wear the KN95 mask, it is advisable to follow certain steps. Before putting on the KN95 mask, it is recommended to maintain hand hygiene by washing both hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer. The next step is to remove the mask from its packaging with clean hands and grasp it with its two elastic loops. The wearer should make sure to put the KN95 face mask on the face the right way: the nose clip should be on top and the mask should cover the nose and chin. They should place the loops around the ears and press the clip to bend it around the nose until it takes its shape. Finally, they should adjust the loops behind the ears in case there is an air leak between the face and the mask.

Keep in mind that facial hair might limit the sealing function so it’s safer for the men to shave to avoid leakage while using. You can also lightly use alternatives masks that are reusable or with different closing systems like straps compared to traditional soft ear loops. The most important remains to have the best sealing possible to minimize the risk.

Authorities that confirm its standard

As the face masks are considered as Personal protective equipment, civil as well as healthcare workers must be wearing them in the most sensitive times in order to limit transmissions of the virus, pollen, and any airborne potential risk. Of course, the medical workers are the ones that take the more risk as they are on the front line to fight against it. As this protective equipment is capital to maintain safety, it is more than normal that it must be approved and certified by the national institute.
