1) Keep the mask loose on the face

Many people make the mistake of keeping the mask loose instead of wearing it properly, as it easily spreads the virus to the face, which can make us sick and cause corona.

2) Do not wash the mask thoroughly

Medical experts recommend washing cloth masks in a washing machine, if this is not possible, then wash them thoroughly at least once.

3) Cover the nose well

We usually inhale through the nose and can transmit viral particles into the body through inhalation, if you are already a victim of Code 19 and wear a mask,” said Thomas Russo, head of the epidemiology department at the University of Buffalo in the United States. If you just cover your mouth, during sneezing, viral particles can spread through the nose into the air, ie you must cover your nose with a face mask.
