IMPORTANCE OF MASK WEARING:
Mask Facts — Hong Kong has a population of approximately 7.5 million people. As of December 2020 there have been 108 COVID-19 related deaths since the beginning of the Pandemic. Why? Because of mask usage. An average of 97% of their public wear face masks, resulting in minimal deaths and caseloads. The mask of choice is KN95.
These figures speak for themselves.
Why are KN95 masks important? KN95 masks protect wearers from 95% of virus droplets. This is what everyone should be wearing to filter the virus in any indoor setting. But because of the PPE shortage in the USA until recently it was discouraged for non-medical workers to wear N95 masks. Our recommendation is the non-medical KN95 masks are ideal for everyday encounters.
In the USA, we are used to recycling masks. Ideally, wearing a new KN95 mask every day offers the best protection possible. And in areas of increased exposure, masks could even be changed every few hours. This is the way the rest of the world views mask use.
In China, school children are given a new KN95 mask every morning before entering their school as they drop their used KN95 mask in the garbage.
BEST MASK PRACTICES:
• Use a new mask every day
• KN95 is the best choice for protection
KN95 / N95:
KN95 masks are equivalent to N95 masks. The K denotes that our masks are manufactured in China.
KN95 / N95 masks protect from 95% of viruses through the weaving of fabric layers that stops aerosols including small airborne particles and large respiratory droplets, along with an electrical charge to capture medium sized viruses from passing through. This filtration efficiency is critical for proper protection.
