Air pollution in combination with Covid-19 is a blow that can be seriously prevented by wearing face masks, but not just any mask.
Dr. Dejan Dokic explained on the “25 minutes” show on TV24 in which cases the face masks protect us.
In relation to the Covid-19 epidemic and the protection measures taken, the N95 face masks provide protection of 95 percent of the air coming into the nose. That is why they are called N95. They greatly reduce the concentration of air pollutants that would penetrate to the nose. The same goes for pollen grains in the allergy season. Wearing face masks, in addition to Covid protection, also protects against respiratory and viral infections as well as allergies, says Dr. Dokic.
