Health experts believe that when the corona spreads, a person with weak immunity is at greater risk. Because they inhale the aerosol produced by an infected person.

With which you can keep people other than the infected person safe.

Which mask to use?
The best mask to prevent any virus is considered to be N95. New guidelines have been issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention of America. On this it has been said that people above 2 years of age should not go to public places. Especially those people who have not got the corona vaccine. And if you go out of the house, then you must wear a mask.
