If you have no symptoms of the coronavirus, should you wear a mask? Maybe this question is one of the most-asked question during this pandemic. Chinese government provided different types of face masks for people in the general public based on the their health risks and occupations.
But the U.S. government initially was so opposed to wearing masks that even professionals responded. The U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, tweeted on Feb. 29, “Seriously people- STOP BUYING MASKS! They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!”So what is the truth?
There are two ideologies—that everyone in the general population should wear a mask, and that they should not be used widely. Both of them have lots of supporters. The former camp point to the scientific studies finding that masks can help protect healthy people from symptoms of influenza-like illnesses, at least a little bit, and hold the view that masks can help protect against asymptomatic spread.
People of the latter camp believe that the current scientific evidence that the masks can protect against viruses effectively is not Completely reliable. And wearing one may give people an illusion that as long as you wear a mask, you don't have to do any other defense.
The views of the two sides are tit for tat. We can't say which side is absolutely right. But for us ordinary people, the most correct way is to wear a mask, and understand the path of virus transmission, effective take other defense measures.
What’s not up for dispute is that there is a shortage of masks in many parts of the world. Health care workers can’t get the personal protective equipment (PPE) that they need to take care of coronavirus patients, including N95 respirators (tight-fitting facial devices that filter out small particles from the air) and surgical masks (loose-fitting, disposable masks designed to block splashes and large-particle droplets that contain viruses and bacteria, but which don’t filter or block very small particles in the air transmitted by coughs or sneezes).
So it is very important to have a mask making machine with good quality and stable supply. Urban is a professional supplier in the research, development, sale and service of mask production machine. For mask making supplier, choosing a reliable supplier is very important.
Wearing a mask probably won’t hurt—as long as you wear it properly, clean it often, wash your hands, continue to not touch your face and physically distance yourself from other people. There’s just not a strong body of evidence that wearing one, especially one you make yourself, will protect you from getting sick. If you want to wear a mask, go for it. But just be mindful of what the possible benefits are and what the possible limitations are. And be realistic.
