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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
