The Coronavirus crisis has caught the whole world by surprise. Currently, there are almost 22 million people infected and some countries’ health systems are on the verge of collapse.

The World Health Organization has published several guidelines for stopping the transmission of the disease, among the most important, washing hands properly, staying at home as much as possible, and wearing a mask if you need to leave your house.

Please, follow the recommendations of the World Health Organization published here.

Why Wearing Medical Masks Matters?

Medical masks prevent the dispersion of droplets when sneezing or coughing. This is important for slowing down the expansion of the virus, which travels with these droplets between organisms. Keep in mind that you may be infected or have suffered from Coronavirus without even noticing. You can find more information on this page.

Homemade Medical Masks

The expansion of the virus has led to a shortage of protective equipment for the general population. Basic equipment such as gloves, protective gowns, shields, or surgical masks are missing in most of the countries, sometimes not being available for the medical professionals either.

Most of the countries recommend using medical masks. As these are hard to find or even not available in pharmacies, we would like to show you how to make a medical masks at home and give you some designs and patterns to print, instructions for its correct usage and maintenance and some extra tips.

Final Word

Please remember that these medical masks are not suitable for professional use if you are a Medical or Nursing specialist and they are only recommended for the general population.

This coronavirus crisis is a battle that we need to fight united and with respect to everybody else.

 

Please stay home, wash your hands often and thoroughly, and use a face mask whenever you leave your home.
