What kind of face mask gives the best protection against Covid-19?

In comparison to the 1918 Spanish flu, the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is one of the biggest health scares in modern world history. We must do whatever we can to fight this virus outbreak.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is widely recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to use face-masks to protect our mouths and noses when out in grocery stores and every other public sector.

Mask does not protect us 100% from catching the virus, but it will not deter us from adding to the germ stream that is immense in putting a world back to “normal,” or as near as possible. Even DIY homemade face mask made from scarf or disposable mask made from kitchen towel or even from office or kraft paper is effective and better than nothing in public place.

Surgical face mask are designed to prevent infections, they made from non-woven fabrics, created using a melt blowing process. This kind of fabric is moisture-proof, breathable, flexible, lightweight and non-irritating. The non-woven fabrics are used in filtration, medical, cleaning of liquid waste, isolation, protective clothes and industrial areas with oil absorbency, water repellent along with other multi-functional features.

Respirator Filtering Facepiece:

This type of face mask is removable, like surgical masks. It is not intended to avoid the transmission of respiratory pathogens, but instead to minimize access to wood smoke, dander and pollen spores. Allergy sufferers should consider using this type of face mask during the pandemic.
