The world is facing a severe shortage of surgical masks due to the coronavirus outbreak in China and other countries.
Surgical masks are believed to protect you from dust, toxic gases, pm 2.5, and viruses, but do you know which one is the front side, and which one is the back side?
The surgical masks will not give you sufficient protection if you’re not wearing them correctly.
Especially in Japan, where most surgical masks are white and have logo on both sides, it’s more difficult to identify which side should be on the front, and today we introduce an ultimate way to identify the front and the back of a surgical mask.
You need to pay attention to the rubber band joints.
If you think you should put the side with rubber band joints inside, you’re wrong!!!
The rubber band joints should be on the outside like this!!!
The seamless side should be on the inside.
If you put the side with rubber band joints on the inside you’ll make a gap between the mask and your face; allowing dust, germs, and viruses to get inside the mask.
If you’ve been putting your mask incorrectly for the whole time, try to put your mask correctly using this method starting from now on!
