Is a face mask just enough to protect you from the Corona virus?
There has been a lot of emphasis on wearing a face mask since the beginning of the corona virus, but now experts say that not just a face mask is enough to avoid the corona virus, but both a mask and social distance are necessary.
A recent study in the United States examined 5 different types of face mask materials to see how they prevent the spread of viral particles during coughing or sneezing.
The study found that each type of material dramatically limited the number of particles, but also found that at a distance of less than 6 feet, these limited particles can infect other people with code 19.
Research has shown that face masks certainly help prevent the spread of the disease, but if people are very close to each other, they are more likely to transmit the virus.
Researchers say that both face masks and social distance are necessary to avoid code 19. For this purpose, the researchers developed a machine that used an air generator that could mimic human coughs and sneezes.
From this generator, tiny particles were expelled into an airtight tube, just as particles are released into the air from the mouth and nose during coughing and sneezing, which the camera used to monitor.
These particles were blocked inside the tube by face masks made of 5 different materials. The masks included a normal cloth mask, a 2-layer cloth mask, a wet 2-layer mask, a surgical mask and an N95 mask.
