In the United States, masks bearing the N95 standard mark must be approved by the National Occupational Health and Safety Agency. According to the CDC, if this type of product does not have the Nyosh brand, it is considered counterfeit.

“They have to be very tight. If you want to protect yourself, they have to be very tight when you put them on. The problem with the surgical mask is that it is too loose, so it does not provide the protection that KN95 or N95 provide,” explains American physician Mike Cycliano.

Now, for those who do not have N95 or KN95 masks, the expert’s advice is to put on a surgical mask first and then wear a cloth.
