According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, it is recommended to wear face masks to help slow the spread of Covid-19. CDC said that cloth face coverings should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face.
The World Health Organisation says that your entire mouth and nose should be covered, with no gaps between your face and the mask.
Yet, a walk on the ground revealed that some Singaporeans would occasionally pulled their cloth face mask below their nose to take a quick breathe.
We understood from our friends and families that they find difficulties in breathing with their existing face masks. This could be the reason why some covered their mouth only and left their nose exposed.
Proper wear of face mask
Here are two very important guidelines to wear your face masks.
- Make sure the mask fits snugly and covers your mouth and nose
- Don't wear your mask only on the tip of your nose, or leave your nose exposed. Covid-19 is spread via respiratory droplets, which can enter through the nose and mouth.
A mask made for hot, tropical weather like Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia
When our team designed our MOIcu+ face mask, we took into consideration of breathability of a mask, especially when one has to wear a face mask for long hours in hot and humid weather (like Singapore weather!).
MOIcu+ is efficiently built with 2 layers - each masks consists of 2 layers:
1) the OUTER LAYER blocks out respiratory droplets as it is waterproof,
2) the INNER LAYER that is infused with copper ions kills viruses and bacteria.
MOIcu+ face mask is also breathable and comfortable by virtue of its fabric. Smooth and soft, it absorbs and dries perspiration quickly and its lightness allows for easy breathing.
MOIcu+ face mask dimension
Get a face mask that fits you properly and comfortably thus you can wear it for long hours with effective protection.
We have provided our mask dimension (length including earloop = 32cm, height = 12cm, please allow 0.5cm measurement error) in photo below.
If your MOIcu+ mask is just a little loose, here's a trick to make a simple adjustable knot. Your mask will be still as comfortable.
