People usually doubt if wearing a mask will stop the spread of the covid-19 pandemic, causing disease. It is noted that not all people wear masks properly on their face. This carelessness is leading to an increased number of cases in the country. The graph had started to come down but now has again started to climb up. These medical professionals claim that the graph will further keep climbing if people don’t take the necessary precautions for preventing covid-19. Industry experts, LHM Medical, believe that it is all spreading because of the reckless behaviour of citizens.
What is the purpose of masks?
The people have been influenced by fashion and are looking to match their clothes with their mask’s colour. These masks are made from ordinary cloth, which is not efficient enough to stop the virus from entering a human’s body. People are more concerned about how they will look instead of how to protect themselves and their family. The scientists have advised people to wear a procedural earloop mask made with three protective layers and stops the germs and virus from entering the body up to 99.99 percentage. These masks are specially designed for the following:

These masks are specially designed for these medical professionals, which is recommended for people because these are the best in preventing the virus entry into our body. The scientists believe that people with low immunity should wear two of such masks for extra precaution as it nullifies the chances of getting covid.
