The Coronavirus is extremely small, around 0.1nm. The pores between the fibers of a cloth
mask are at least 1000 times bigger than the virus! They may help in protecting other people from being infected if you are infected, but it has as much chance of blocking a coronavirus as a football
goal post stretched to THRICE its size has of stopping a football!
An N95 /KN95 / surgical face mask has a middle layer of melt-blown polypropylene, which not
only forms a very fine mesh with pore size 0.1- 1 nm, but also has fibers that are electrically
charged to attract and trap the virus.
The difference between a reusable cloth mask and an N95 / Surgical face mask is that between
being alive and dead. Think about it, if your house was at risk, would you rather leave the
front door wide open or set up an electrically charged barbed-wire fence for protection?
Don’t wash your N95 / KN95 / Surgical Face Mask because it clumps the fibers together and
destroys the charge. It is like short-circuiting your electrically charged barbed-wire fence by
joining the wires together. Just don’t wash or reuse your N95/KN95, it just becomes useless. Keep others and yourself safe because guess what, FaceMaskIsTheNewCondom – you wouldn’t wash and reuse your condom, why do
it with a face mask?
