How to use masks to prevent coronavirus


Masks are one of the self-protection tools that can prevent the body from exposure to air and dust pollution.

Masks are the main precautions of the various risks of diseases that spread through the particles in the air.

Surgical masks or face masks are disposable types that are often used by medical personnel when handling patients.

Looking at how it works, the N95 type masks may be more recommended use for coronavirus prevention because it is more effective in filtering various particles in the air.

Also, the more restrictive mask N95 feels better to protect you from viral infections when compared to surgical masks that still have gaps.

Leo Yee Sin, executive director of The National Center for Infectious Diseases in Singapore, told The Straits Times that when you used an N95 mask and still could breathe a sigh of relief, it means you're not using it appropriately.

The N95 masks are usually only recommended for medical staff.
