Now the global epidemic of new pneumonia has become more and more serious. Many people have bought masks to prevent the spread of the epidemic, especially KN95 masks. The filtration efficiency is greater than or equal to 95%. Let me introduce the correct wearing method of KN95 mask.
How to wear ear strap masks:
1. Facing the side of the mask without the nose clip, pull one ear strap with each hand so that the nose clip is above the mask;
2. Hold your chin with a mask;
3. After pulling the ear strap to the ear, adjust the ear strap to feel as comfortable as possible;
4. Place the fingers of both hands in the middle of the metal nose clip and move the fingertips along the nose clip to both sides while pressing inwards until the nose clip is fully pressed into the shape of the bridge of the nose. Pinching the mask nose clip with only one hand may affect the tightness of the mask.
How to wear a headband mask:

2. Put the mask against the chin, and use both hands to pull the lower headband over the top of the head and place it under the ear behind the neck;
3. Pull the upper headband over the top of the head and place it behind the neck ears;

You can choose according to actual needs.
Precautions for wearing KN95 mask:
1. Wash your hands before wearing a mask, or avoid touching your hands with the inside of the mask while wearing the mask to reduce the possibility of the mask being contaminated.
2. Distinguish the inside, outside, top and bottom of the mask; the printed side of the KN95 mask is the outside; the one end of the metal strip / sponge strip is above the mask.
3. Do not squeeze the mask by hand, including the KN95 mask, you can only isolate the virus on the surface of the mask. If you squeeze the mask by hand, the virus will wet the mask with the droplets, there is still a chance of infection.
4. Make sure that the mask and the face have a good adhesion. The simple test method is: after putting on the mask, exhale hard, and the air cannot leak from the edge of the mask.
