Wearing a mask is only part of the solution. it’s also important to regularly clean cloth face masks. The masks should be machine washed at 60 degrees, and ironed if possible. The CDC has great advice here.
WHY WEAR A MASK
Masks can be worn to help protect the wearer from getting infected or can be worn to protect others from being infected by an asymptomatic and/or positive wearer, in conjunction with frequent thorough hand washing.
Fully protecting the wearer is difficult: It requires medical-grade respirator masks, a proper fit, careful putting on/taking off and using masks such as such as the N95 or PPE (personal protection equipment) masks. If you wish to purchase a medical grade mask, please check its quality has been approved by a governing body such as the BSI Group in the UK. The masks sold on wipe-out.eu are not medical-grade mask.
Preventing transmission to others: This is the purpose of masks sold on our website. Research shows that even a cotton mask dramatically reduces the number of virus particles emitted from our mouths by as much as 99%. If we lower the likelihood of one person infecting another, the impact is exponential. And because we don’t know for sure who’s sick, the only solution is for everyone to wear masks.
NB Masks should be used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water!
