Wearing a face mask is more important than you think

Wearing a face mask is more important than you think

 

With the global Covid-19 pandemic surging to new heights, there is mounting evidence that wearing a face mask is a lot more important than you may think.

There have been numerous studies and mounting evidence that face masks help to stop and slow the spread of the Novel coronavirus. Many argue that a face mask is not for your own protection, but for the protection of others (so that you do not spread the virus to others).

However, a recent theory from Dr. Monica Gandhi, UC San Francisco professor of medicine and medical director of the HIV Clinic at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, says that masking can lead to less severe symptoms in the unfortunate case that you do contract the virus.

"Breathing in a small amount of virus may lead to no disease or far more mild infection. But inhaling a huge volume of virus particles can result in serious disease or death."

Makes sense right?

In addition, we're seeing far less cases of Covid-19 in Asian countries. Although there are many variables, in countries like South Korea and Japan, wearing face masks are a normal part of daily life. Common sense tells us, the spread of Covid-19 in these countries has almost come to a halt, most likely due to wearing face masks.

We think it's a no-brainer that everyone should be wearing a face mask when out in public and that we all should be doing our part to stop this pandemic. Face masks are important and we've been selling high quality face masks on our shop now for a few months, and we still believe our masks are superior in quality and comfort. Here are a few things we think you should look out for when purchasing a mask, whether it be through us or another store.

 

PROTECTION

Our masks from General9 utilize a triple layer system. It consists of an outer anti-microbial layer, an inner anti-microbial shell with odor reducing fabric, and a middle layer, where a replaceable filter can be inserted.

 

COMFORT

Wearing a mask for hours can lead to great discomfort, many masks are very hard to breath in, fog up glasses, and cause migraines due to elastic bands tugging on the ears. These are all very important factors to consider when choosing a mask that works for you. Our General9 masks solve all of these issues. The material is very breathable, yet still offers great protection. There is a nose wire, which can be molded to create a tight seal around the bridge of your nose, therefore preventing fogging of glasses. And last but not least, the adjustable ear straps are a life saver, they will reduce fatigue and migraines as the mask won't tug at your ears.

 

PRICE

Disposable masks may seem to be the most affordable option at first, however, it adds up quickly. Our General9 masks are washable and reusable. They are rated to maintain a high level of protection even after 40+ washes. The removable filters can also be washed 5+ times while maintaining approximately a 95% efficiency level.

 

STYLE

Yes, style. Come on, we're all K-POP fans here and of course we want to look good in our masks like our idols. We think these masks are some of the most stylish looking masks on the market today, but you can be judge of that.

More people have died from wearing face masks this year in the USA, than have died from this year’s common flu called COVID-19. Countless more people have been injured or involved in accidents because they are passing out (blacking out), hyperventilating, higher body temperature, having heart attacks, or having strokes due to suffering from LOW OXYGEN INTAKE which is also known as OXYGEN DEPRIVATION. Furthermore, the higher the quality of the mask, the less oxygen intake the person gets. If germs are kept out, so is life giving OXYGEN. This is the TRUTH!!! Numerous Medical Doctors have been saying that only sick people, in isolation, and NOT performing any type of physical activity, need to or should be wearing a face mask, and “ONLY” when a healthy, non-sick person approaches them, as a protection for the healthy person. NO healthy person should be on Isolation (aka House Arrest), and NO healthy person should be wearing a face mask. No person should be wearing a face mask under strenuous times of physical activity such as working, exercise, or even walking. Now, add in the fact that many people have different ailments or conditions or perhaps are overweight, then throw a face mask on them that concentrates their exhaling air (aka CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2)), and you see why face masks are killing many more people than any virus. JUST SAY NO TO WEARING FACE MASKS, BECAUSE YOUR LIFE MAY DEPEND ON IT. The wearing of face masks for any extended or continuous amounts of time are in fact a VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW according to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Go buy yourself a good Pulse Oximeter which check blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate.
Use it with mask on for monitoring Hypoxia (low oxygen in your tissues) and Hypoxemia oxygen deficiency/low oxygen in your blood.

SCIENCE
REPLACE WITH
WITCHCRAFT AND FEAR

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.
The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.
It is also clear that masks serve symbolic roles.
Masks are not only tools, they are also talismans that may help increase health care workers’ perceived sense of safety, well-being, and trust in their hospitals. Although such reactions may not be strictly logical, we are all subject to fear and anxiety, especially during times of crisis.

It is proven properly worn face masks have helped doctors and nurses that take care of Covid parients from getting infection. Your body could fight small amount of virus instead of being overloaded with too much when not wearing masks.

Wearing a mask does not prevent the Corona Virus or ANY virus from getting through that mask. The Corona Virus is 1/10 the size of a micron. A normal cloth mask has holes that are about 100 microns large and for N95 masks, its tested to be 3 microns. As you can see, these masks will NOT prevent any virus from getting through to YOU.

A mask is simply a PLACEBO to make the user “feel” safe. That is all. It does not give any protection at all.

I have bought 4 mask from you guys, and I absolutely love them. Other styles have aggravated or brought on migraines, but these are incredibly comfortable. Thank you for making it easy to get a great set of masks.
