Wearing only a mask will not help but to prevent the spread of covid-19, both social distancing with a mask are necessary. Researchers have concluded new tests.
Wearing masks to prevent the spread of Kovid-19 cannot be enough without social distancing. Researchers have concluded the results by testing the effect of the material used in five types of masks.
It is important to note that the corona virus droplets spread when sneezing or coughing. Research revealed that testing of each of the ingredients of the mask resulted in an unexpected decrease in the number of droplets. But the droplets causing potential disease reached several materials less than six feet away.
Face mask is not enough to avoid Covid-19
Researcher Professor Krishna Kota of New Mexico State University says, “Of course masks help, but even if people are very close to each other, there is a possibility of corona virus spreading or virus infection. So just wear masks Taking will not help but to prevent the spread of Kovid-19, both with a mask and social distancing are essential. “
Researchers at the university created an air generator to simulate human cough or sneeze. They used the generator to blow droplets of tiny liquid particles such as coughs or sneezes from the laser sheet into the air. The generator also had an airtight square with a tube fitted with a camera.
Social distancing is also important with the mask – research
Five different types of mask material prevented the flow of droplets into the tube with a regular cloth mask, a two-tier cloth mask, a wet two-tier cloth mask, a surgical mask and an N-95 mask.
He said that tests showed that each mask was able to hold a large amount of droplets. But the small amount of droplets at a distance of less than six feet proved to be enough to make anyone sick, especially when someone with a corona virus sneezes or coughs several times.
Research has revealed that a single sneeze can carry upwards of 200 million micro virus particles. It depends on how sick the carrier is. According to the researchers, without a face mask, it is almost certain that many external droplets will be transferred to the susceptible person. Kota said, “Wearing face masks will provide satisfactory protection but not completely. So, face-to-face interaction should be avoided as far as possible.”
