Does wearing double-masks give you a better better protection against coronavirus?

As the COVID cases spike up in India, with the second wave hitting, people are getting more cautious about their safety. While staying at home is one way to stay safe, yet one needs to wear a mask to protect himself/herself from the virus.

A new trend of wearing double masks has been going on for a few months now. According to doctors, wearing a double mask enhances protection from the virus and reduces the probability of catching and transmitting the virus. Also, the Centre for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) stated that putting on double masks reduces the COVID exposure by 96.4%

What is double masking?

Wearing one mask on top of another means double masking. Double making properly seals your nose, and mouth, since the mask on the top applies gentle pressure to the mask beneath it. As the virus spreads through respiratory droplets, the multi-layered mask can help infiltration, thereby blocking the droplets to enter your nose or mouth. It provides better protection when one coughs or sneezes near you.

How & when to wear a double mask?

One may opt for wearing double masks while going to crowded places like markets, airports, public transport, or places of worship. Even the shopkeepers, vendors, & counter attendants who attend a lot of people daily and exchange cash must wear double masks.

– One fabric mask on top of a surgical/medical mask is a good combination.

– A mask & face shield can be used at places that are extremely crowded.

– Avoid double masking if you are using an N95 mask.

– Children should avoid double masks.

Dos of masking:

– Wash fabric masks in hot water daily.

– Mask should be worn properly – covering the nose, mouth, and chin.

– Sanitize/wash your hands properly after removing the mask.

– Make sure that the strings of the masks aren’t loose.

Don’ts of masking:

– Avoid wearing wet masks.

– Masks should not hang on your ear, neck, or chin.

– Avoid touching the central portion of the mask.

– Mask shouldn’t be removed while talking to someone face to face.

– Put a handkerchief on top of your mask while sneezing/coughing.
