THE NEED FOR FACE MASKS
As coronavirus continues to spread, the biggest fear for medical professionals is a lack of personal protective equipment. The Futon Shop's face masks are not intended to replace the medical grade N95 masks, but since the disease spreads by respiratory droplets, they are still a barrier for those exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19 or medical professionals attending to sick patients. The Center for Disease Control says that when no face masks are available, healthcare professionals should use homemade masks when treating patients with Covid-19. For those who are not healthcare providers, our face masks are an alternative that won’t reduce the availability of the medical-grade N95 face masks for those who need them most. Doctors say that even if cloth coverings only reduce transmission to and from each wearer by half, that would reduce the chance of spread by 75 percent, reducing the exponential growth of the disease.Here is what the CDC says about the use of cloth face coverings to help slow the spread of COVID-19
WE MUST FLATTEN THE CURVE
We all must do our part to prevent the spread of coronavirus and save lives. Current projections show that our medical system does not have the personnel, beds, or equipment to care for all who will need medical treatment. That’s why it’s essential to slow the spread of Covid-19 through social distancing and protective equipment. By “flattening the curve,” we can help ensure the infections and hospitalizations occur over a longer period of time and don’t overwhelm our medical system and cause a higher death rate.
