What type of face mask is good against the corona virus, also known as the covid-19 or Wuhan virus? According to medical expo, FFP1 masks are currently being used to help protect against being infected with the corona virus.
FFP1 masks have a minimum of 90% filtration percentage and maximum 8% leakage to the inside. They are mainly used in construction, agriculture, and by healthcare professionals against influenza viruses. They are currently used for protection against the coronavirus.
These hygiene face masks are either valved or unvalved filtering masks that are recommended when protection of the respiratory system is needed.
They are FFP1 grade (N90 equivalent) and meet the guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO). They are recommended for use by the WHO during outbreaks of SARS, Avian Flu and Coronavirus.
The FFP1 / N90 Face Masks are a half-mask respirator that covers the nose and mouth when fitted properly. They have 2 elastic headbands to keep the mask in place and are white in colour. They also have a small metal section that sits across the bridge of the nose when in use.
You can buy these from the “UK Face Mask”. The FFP1 face mask listed above will help protect wearers against the Coronavirus.
The Hygiene Face Masks are easy to use and can be worn by anyone. To fit, simply hold the mask and place it over your nose and mouth. Bring both elasticated headbands over your head and adjust the position until it’s comfortable.
The bottom elasticated headband should sit at the nape of your neck and the top elasticated headband should sit just above the crest of your head (the widest part).
Once the face mask is in place, you can adjust the fitting on your nose by pinching or moving the metal bridge section so that it fits closely but without being too tight.
The masks are comfortable to wear as they are lightweight and non-bulky.
