Mask and virus

What is the new coronavirus?

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is defined as illness caused by a novel coronavirus now called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2; formerly called 2019-nCoV), which was first identified amid an outbreak of respiratory illness cases in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China.  It was initially reported to the WHO on December 31, 2019. On January 30, 2020, the WHO declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global health emergency.  On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, its first such designation since declaring H1N1 influenza a pandemic in 2009. 

Illness caused by SARS-CoV-2 was recently termed COVID-19 by the WHO, the new acronym derived from "coronavirus disease 2019. " The name was chosen to avoid stigmatizing the virus's origins in terms of populations, geography, or animal associations.


How to protect novel coronavirus?


1. Wash your hands often.

2. Avoid close contact.

3. Wear a protective mask when there are other people around .

4. Cover coughs and sneezes.

5. Clean and disinfect.

What problem can our protective mask solve for novel coronavirus?

1. Reduce and prevent novel coronavirus infection.

Because one of the transmission routes of the new coronavirus is droplet transmission, the mask can not only prevent contact with the virus carrier to spray droplet, reduce the droplet volume and spray speed, but also block the droplet nucleus containing the virus, preventing the wearer from inhaling.

2. Prevent respiratory droplet transmission

droplet transmission the distance is not very long, usually no more than 2 meters.Droplets larger than 5 microns in diameter will settle quickly. If they are too close to each other, the droplets will fall onto each other's mucosa through coughing, speaking and other behaviors, resulting in infection. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain a certain social distance.

3. contact infection

if the hands are accidentally contaminated with the virus, rubbing the eyes may cause infection, so wear a mask and wash hands frequently, which is also very helpful to reduce transmission and reduce the risk of personal infection.


  1. Do not touch masks that have been used by others because they can cross-infect.
  2. Used masks should not be placed casually. If placed directly in bags, clothing pockets and other places, infection may continue.
