What is the difference between a 3-ply mask and ordinary face cover?

The biggest difference between a 3-ply surgical mask and an ordinary face mask is the melt-blown layer in a surgical mask.

The melt-blown layer in a 3-ply surgical mask is essentially a filter, the droplets containing viruses will be electrostatically adsorbed on the surface and cannot infiltrate the mask. If your mask is properly fitted, the surgical mask will create a basic barrier between your mouth and nose and the viruses.

Are 3-ply masks as effective as surgical masks?

The 3-ply surgical mask has been proven to be as effective as an N95 mask in preventing viral infections like influenza. 3 ply face mask also helps to reduce the spread of viruses, germs, and bacteria. Its three-ply material is made up of a melt-blown material placed between the non-woven fabric.

How long can you wear a 3-ply mask for?

If the mask is dry and not torn, it can be reused for two to three days.

Are masks effective against the coronavirus disease?

Masks should be used by a symptomatic individual, if available, to provide a physical barrier that may help to prevent the transmission of the virus by blocking the dispersion of large particle respiratory droplets propelled by coughing, sneezing and talking.
