The Best KN95 Masks for Kids and Delta Variant Pro (29th Oct 21 at 6:35am UTC)
The Best KN95 Masks for Kids and Delta Variant Protection

Eighteen months into the pandemic, we are facing the most contagious variant of COVID to date—the Delta variant. It is twice as contagious as the other variants, and those infected can have up to 1000 times the viral load. This Delta variant can be transmitted from one person to another in a matter of seconds!To get more news about CE antiepidemic mask, you can visit official website.

While the majority of children are headed back to school for in-person learning, unvaccinated people are still at higher risk for getting the Delta variant. Given that less than half of kids ages 12 and older are vaccinated, and kids under 12 years are still not eligible for vaccines, more children are getting COVID and ending up in the hospital. Children currently account for 22% of new COVID-19 cases, even though they make up only 17% of the population. On top of that, in the last two weeks of August, infection rates in children rose 9%!

With variants on the rise, protecting kids as they go back to school is a top priority. Making sure that your children are wearing the best disposable kids mask available is key to keeping children and families at a lower risk. While some COVID infections in kids are mild and may be treated at home, the recent surge of pediatric ICU admissions for kids with COVID is a reminder that low risk is not no risk. A small percentage of kids develop severe acute infections from COVID and need hospitalization. In addition, following COVID infection, kids can also suffer a rare but serious inflammatory disease called MIS-C (Multi-Inflammatory Syndrome in Children). On top of that, there’s long COVID or “long haul” COVID, which occurs when COVID symptoms—fatigue, headaches, loss of smell and taste, brain fog—linger for weeks or months after mild and even asymptomatic infections. While estimates vary widely, based on a recent study from the UK, one out of every 25 kids have COVID symptoms that persist over a month after getting infected.
Despite the political and legal arguments, there is little scientific debate about the effectiveness of masks for COVID transmission. Plain and simple, face masks decrease the spread of COVID. With highly infectious variants like Delta spreading widely and plans for kids to be back in the classroom, most experts agree that it’s time to up your family’s mask game and find masks that provide your kids with a high level of protection.

With hundreds of masks on the market, finding quality masks can be easier said than done. Here’s what you need to ensure when it comes to picking a mask for your child:

FIT:When it comes to finding a good fit, the key is to pick a mask that is designed and sized specifically for kids. As most masks only come in a couple of sizes, if a disposable kids mask is still too loose on your child, tie knots in the ear loops for a tighter fit or try what the CDC calls “the knot and tuck” technique.

FILTRATION: To find a mask that actually keeps particles out, look for masks that actually have certified test results that confirm it has a high particulate filtration efficiency (PFE). The higher the PFE, the better the mask material is at keeping tiny droplets out. Wait, the last mask you bought did not display its independent test results? That probably means it wasn't tested to the standards you want it to be held to in order to be most effective. You may not know that millions of KN95 masks imported during the pandemic didn’t pass proper filtration tests, with some masks filtering only one percent of particles while claiming to filter greater than 95%. Health care providers rely on certified testing to know if a mask is really effective. As consumers and parents, we should insist on the same level of transparent testing.
