Ever since the Quebec government made face mask mandatory, we've all wanted to get the best face masks to protect ourselves and our community. But what makes silk the best fabric for filtering coronavirus particles?
How Wearing a Face Mask Prevents the Spread of COVID-19?
A face mask prevents you from spreading the virus to other people if you are infected with the disease but don't know it yet. Coronavirus is expelled by an infected person when they cough, sneeze, or even breath. Ideally breath is filtered through the mask so that microscopic particles are captured inside the fabric and do not spread into the wider world.
Silk has a charge that prevents COVID-19 particles from escaping electromagnetically. Combined with cotton which captures particles like a physical net and a Nathon Kong mask prevents the majority of microscopic particles from escaping the mask.
