Focus one:

How to distinguish the true and false masks

According to the staff of Beijing Consumer Association, there are several steps to distinguish the true and false masks. The first step is to see whether the package is complete and tidy; the second step is to see whether the printing, including the logo on the package and the font of the instructions for use, is clear and the layout is beautiful. The masks with labor safety signs are common in the market, which is particularly important for the identification of La printing; the third step is to see whether the signs are marked with production date, manufacturer, national standard number and other signs; whether they are within the warranty period.

For the identification of medical masks, it is to see whether there are words such as medical protective masks and medical surgical masks on the package. If only medical masks are displayed, it is not a medical surgical mask, and its material and performance are lower than that of medical surgical masks. The production standard of medical protective mask (kn95 / N95) is gb19083-2010, and the standard number of medical surgical mask is yy0469-2011. Consumers can also be identified through the website of the State Drug Administration.

The staff said that they can also judge whether the mask is true or false by checking whether the face pasted on the mask is glossy, whether there is no broken hair or stain, and whether the mask has peculiar smell. In addition, it can be distinguished by the printing process of the mask: the real text is printed by laser etching, and it is 45 degree twill. Due to the cost and technical limitations, the fake is generally printed by ink, unable to present twill.

Focus two:

What are the hazards of inferior masks

According to Liu Yang, an emergency doctor, the appearance of the known inferior masks is mostly similar to that of the genuine masks, but the inferior masks do not have the filter layer and water absorption layer of the genuine masks. The most intuitive feeling that a bad mask gives the wearer is thin, because it is a layer of cloth or other materials. Liu Yang said that masks that can really resist fine particles and bacteria and viruses need to use professional anti-bacterial fabrics and internal filters, so that they can effectively filter fine particles and resist bacteria and viruses. Liu Yang said that in fact, although the inferior masks can resist dust entering the respiratory system to a certain extent, most of the materials they use do not meet the quality standards, contain a lot of organic volatiles, and even have pungent smell, and the volatile chemical gases they contain are harmful to peoples experience. Not only that, low quality masks usually do not have antibacterial performance, wear too long, it is easy to breed a large number of bacteria, which has a potential safety hazard to the wearers respiratory health system. Secondly, the fabric of poor quality masks usually does not meet the safety and health standards, wear for a long time, which is easy to cause skin redness and swelling, poor breathing and other problems.
