Almost everywhere in the world, it’s compulsory to wear a mask, whether you like it or not. It has now become more of a necessity. It is not essential that you only wear a surgical mask whenever you step outside of the home, you can wear a normal regular mask or even cover your face from a cloth.
To this necessity, many designers have tried their hand to design a mask. French designer Isabel Marant is selling a lovely spring three-piece mask set for $110. Some have tried making cool designs, clever political slogans, sports team logos, and school mascots.
While, on the other hand, most people are not comfortable to wear a mask. They feel a bit uncomfortable and bulky, and cause irritation. Likewise, many people think that wearing a mask can be toxic as we exhale carbon dioxide and breathe in it again. In Victoria Forster’s recent Forbes article, she explains why you will not become “toxic” from carbon dioxide inhalation. She briefed, these tiny carbon dioxide molecules, each 232 picometers (232 trillionths of a millimeter) in length, will pass through any mask you’d wear, even an N95.
So, the most often asked question about the mask is-Will wearing mask give a protection from Covid-19 for you and around you? Well, to this, let me tell you that no it doesn’t work that way. But it will definitely can help reducing respiratory droplet spread, especially when you are six feet distant from those around you. Hence, the more people wear a mask, the more overall protection there will be.
Centers for Disease Control stressed on the pints that children under the age of two should not wear face masks as they might be suffocated by it. The reason behind this is: Since the airways for babies are smaller and wearing a mask can make difficult for them to breathe and cause the risk of suffocation. And if you think to get a loose fit, it will not provide much protection. Also, older toddlers or young toddlers try removing it and then touch their faces more often. Also, there are no N95 masks which are approved for young children.
