What not to do when wearing a mask
The mask is a barrier to the virus provided that certain mistakes are not made. For example :
The mask should be worn 4 hours maximum. During this period, it can only be used several times if it is removed according to the instructions, temporarily stored or hung to have the least possible contact, and put back on according to the instructions. The mask should be washed whenever it is soiled, wet or improperly positioned on the face.
Disposable mask: blue side or white side?
Disposable surgical masks have a blue (or colored) side and a white side. To properly put on this mask, the blue (or colored) side must be on the outside and the white against the mouth, the white side being the absorbent face.
Why colors on a surgical mask? "Because it is composed of 2 or 3 layers, some of which have an anti-humidity capacity and the others are filters. The goal is to drastically reduce particles reaching the mouth. These filters are like barriers which will fail one after the other due to humidity. After 4 hours, the mask is completely permeable so remove and dispose of it carefully and then disinfect well" answer Dr Sebastian Marciano, doctor at the medical emergencies of Paris (UMP).
