♪ Hello, The following is important information about the use of masks and COVID-19. First, you should know that masks are not the best protection against infections such as the coronavirus disease. They are first and foremost a means to help prevent infected people from spreading the disease through the air. They are also useful for health care professionals during certain specific treatments. Now let’s look at the some of the differences between N95 masks and procedure masks. N95 masks are mostly used by health care professionals to protect them from viruses and airborne particles. They filter the air that is breathed in during
certain high-risk treatments with patients. Procedure masks, on the other hand, above all allow people with
symptoms of respiratory infections to protect their entourage. They block larger, potentially virus-carrying droplets that are released into the air when we cough, talk or sneeze. Don’t forget that the best way to
protect yourself from COVID-19 is to follow recommended hygiene measures. Protecting yourself saves lives.
