COVID-19 Impact on Face Mask Market

In the beginning of the outbreak, face masks were mainly recommended for health care workers, people who have COVID-19, and were showing symptoms and people taking care of someone who was ill with the new coronavirus. On April 3, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidance advising all individuals to wear cloth facial covers in public areas where close contact with others is unavoidable, citing new evidence on virus transmission from asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic individuals. Masks are advised to be used in public or when people are nearby as it acts as a physical barrier to protect and others from viral and bacterial particulates. Many people unknowingly infect others by going out and spreading germs by coughing or touching others. Wearing a mask is good for the following reasons:

  • It will cut down 95% of the breathing that sends the virus up to 6 feet away in a room.
  • It will reduce oral transmission by preventing the virus from getting into the nose or mouth if a contaminated surface is touched.
