Recently, there were over 150,000 new cases in the United States that day, and a total of over 10.5 million confirmed cases. Virus experts in the United States have warned that the coming holidays may cause more serious virus transmission. Local governments have introduced strict social facilities in public places one after another, and require that you must wear masks when you go out. Not only the United States, but also new confirmed cases in various countries have also shown a trend of rising. This also tells us that the epidemic is not over, and you must not take off the mask at this time, but if the mask you bought has expired, can you still use it? ?
The mask has expired, can it still be used?
It is not recommended to use the mask after it has expired. Because expired masks cannot guarantee the amount and quality of virus adsorption, it will affect the function of the mask; and expired masks are no longer sterile and are prone to bacteria infection. Therefore, it is not recommended to use expired masks. If it is a mask produced by a regular manufacturer, and the outer packaging is not damaged or contaminated, it can still be used alone.
It is worth noting that it should be applied to densely populated areas rather than densely populated areas. Ineffective masks not only cannot effectively prevent the infection of germs, but can even cause allergies and eczema. Therefore, the mask cannot be used once it expires. But if it is used for dust prevention, warmth, etc., it can still be used if there is no pollution and no damage.
In addition, when there is a shortage of materials, in terms of personal protection, it can also be used to prevent viruses, but it must be ensured that the outer packaging of the mask is not damaged and kept sealed. At present, in the prevention and control of the epidemic, KIEYYUEL or INTECH disposable masks, disposable medical masks and medical surgical masks can be used for personal protection. But pay attention to the method of wearing, such as medical surgical masks, wear them on both sides, with the dark side facing out, and the light side facing inward against your face.
