Fask Mask (KN95 Mask and Surgical Mask)
It is important to understand the importance of masks in the spread of infection, but more vital information is to know the transmission dynamics of COVID-19 infection. Droplet transmission occurs when a person is in close contact (within 1 m) with someone who has respiratory symptoms (e.g., coughing, sneezing, or even speaking), most commonly by inhalation. Wearing a face mask will help prevent the spread of infection and prevent the individual from contracting any airborne infectious germs. When someone coughs, talks, sneezes they could release germs into the air that may infect others nearby. Face masks are part of an infection control strategy to eliminate cross-contamination.
Transmission could also occur through fomites in the immediate environment around the infected person. A fomite is an inanimate object that, when contaminated with or exposed to infectious agents (such as disease-causing bacteria, virus or fungi), can transfer disease to another person. Fomites include doorknobs, switches, computer keyboards, etc. At hospitals, it could be stethoscopes, neckties, drips and other hospital equipments. Fomite transmission could be important as the virus may remain viable, depending on the surface, for hours and in some cases, days. Frequent hand washing and cleaning schedules are ways to reduce fomite transmission. But the inhalation route remains the predominant mode of spread.
Most people think that wearing a mask is for self-protection, and that is partially true. But the main benefit of all people wearing masks is that in infected persons, the mask will help prevent these droplets from getting into the air and infecting others. They are thus very useful in reducing the spread of infection to others.
This assumes even more significance as reports are coming in suggesting that the virus can live in droplets in the air for up to three hours after release from an infected individual, lingering even much after the person has left the area. Furthermore, one in four to five individuals infected with COVID-19 virus are not symptomatic and they may have started releasing viruses before they developed symptoms. This is a key factor in the ability of this virus to spread, and the infected do not even know they are infecting others. Evidence has been mounting on the value of masks in reducing community spread.
Wearing face masks therefore protects the user and also the others around his periphery. The use of face masks in social spaces is therefore likely to play a vital role in mitigating this disease spread. We feel that the use of face masks should become the utmost mandatory when people step out of their homes to any area where social distancing is not practical. This is a sustainable and affordable intervention of wearing face masks which we need to adopt in a very disciplined way whenever we step out of the house.
