3 Ply Type IIR

What is a 3 Ply Type IIR surgical face mask?

A 3 Ply Type IIR mask is a surgical mask that covers the mouth and nose to prevent the access point for a lot of bodily fluids, germs and viruses. You will often see them used in busy and populated areas where the spread of disease is much more likely, as well to prevent the inhalation of dangerous pollution and chemicals. They may also be worn by those who are sick themselves to reduce the risk of spreading the disease by coughing, sneezing and breathing.

These flu masks can protect you from bacteria and viruses that survive within droplets of bodily fluids from an infected individual caused by sneezing and coughing. These are common symptoms of the flu so these masks are therefore effective at helping stop the spread of the flu as well as the common cold.

There is some debate as to the effectiveness of surgical face masks against the spread of disease, but recent evidence done suggest wearing a flu mask can reduce your chances of getting the flu by up to 70% if worn properly and paired with good hygiene and handwashing.
