Why is improved respiratory protection so important?

Mutated covid-19 viruses can increase the risk of infection. Health authorities recommend increasing the distance, from 1 to 2 meters, which can be difficult to maintain over time. Especially indoors with narrow areas and the possibility of poor or insufficient ventilation. Even in this critical and serious situation, it is important to maintain vital activities and to prevent the spread of infection. This increases the need for better protection.

Optimal protection against harmful particles and microorganisms, both for the user and fellow human beings.

Health Authorities in countries such as Austria (link), Germany, UK, and others recommend better protection against Covid-19. In addition to recommend/demand social distance from 1 to 2 meters, continuous good personal hygiene – handwash and hand disinfection – use of respirators. Filtering half mask category FFP2 (N95) will protect better than medical face masks. Category FFP3 (N99) is even better.

  1. Medical or Surgical Face masks gives one-way protection. It is better than fabric masks, by blocking the transmission of pathogens (primarily bacteria and viruses) shed in respiratory droplets and aerosols from the wearer's mouth and nose.

  2. FFP2 respirators, filtering half masks without valve protects both ways. Both you and others. Use: In situations that involve close contact with other people over time.

  3. FFP3 respirators, filtering half masks without valve. Protects both ways. Use: Health care professionals, activities that involve a high risk of transmitting infection.

NB! Regardless of whether you wear the best protective mask and eye protection, you must ensure a sufficient distance to other people and follow local infection control regulations.
