Do mouth caps, mouth masks or face masks protect against viruses?

We understand that in these very troubled times, people want to make their own mouth protectors, face masks or mouth masks. We can supply the cloth. However, we would like to remind you that the safety of do-it-yourself mouth masks is not 100% reliable. The following important information about this: what these mouth masks actually do and why these face masks often need to be washed.


A mouth mask is supposed to protect against the coronavirus. What is true?

Since the lung disease caused by the coronavirus, many people dare to leave home alone only with a mouth mask on. They want to avoid picking up germs in public. However, a face mask is not a breathing mask. However, hygiene experts do not consider it proven that a mouth guard also has a protective function outside the hospital. So far, the available studies do not give an unambiguous picture. Moreover, a mouth mask, such as the one worn by surgeons in the operating room, should not be seen as a respiratory mask either, because air can pass through it at the sides, the hygiene and environmental medicine specialists explain: a mouth guard is like tying a kitchen towel to your face.
There are, however, TWO POSITIVE effects imaginable: if you have a cold yourself and don't want to burden your environment with germs, a mouth protector can at least catch some of the pathogens. Drops of saliva that are sprayed when sneezing or speaking remain largely in the mask. "A cold person is even safer if he stays at home from the first signs of illness and deliberately avoids crowds," medical pronouncements say.


Mouth masks against accidental contact

A mouth mask or face mask can also have a positive influence on your own hygiene behaviour: many infections with flu-like pathogens are caused by people unconsciously touching their face with infected hands. After all, scientific studies show that each person touches their nose and mouth an average of 300 times a day. A mouth protector such as a mouth cap or mouth masks can prevent direct contact. "Therefore, especially for patients with a weak immune system, e.g. after an organ transplant or during chemotherapy, a mouth guard can be useful," the specialists say. However, it should be replaced regularly with a new one so that it does not itself become a germ reservoir. Washing the cloth at 90 degrees is therefore very important.
