LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier – perfect mask against coronavirus?
Looks great is’nt it? But it is not about just cool desing. This device uses H13 HEPA filters, medical grade silicon (same materials applied to oxygen respirators at hospitals), dual fans (!) for ventilation and a respiratory sensor. It really is mask of the future.
Of course, it has to be said that there is no guarantee that the HEPA filter will trap something as small as the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 in every case. However, it certainly increases the safety of the wearer.
Here are the basics of how to wear a mask:
– Clean your hands before you put your mask on, as well as before and after you take it off, and after you touch it at any time.
– Make sure it covers both your nose, mouth and chin.
– When you take off a mask, store it in a clean plastic bag, and every day either wash it if it’s a fabric mask, or dispose of a medical mask in a trash bin. (Source: WHO)
