The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had advised that healthy people do not need to apply masks, but now the CDC is examining its guidelines. The reason is that 25 percent of people infected with the new coronavirus do not show symptoms. In such a situation, there is still a need to avoid going out and washing hands frequently. Ordinary people should not wear medical grade masks, as they are available in very small numbers and these masks are necessary for medical staff engaged in saving lives.
It is necessary to apply a mask to patients who are struggling with the new coronavirus, so as not to spread the infection to others, it is also necessary for those who have not yet been treated or who do not show signs of infection. Some organizations are preparing temporary masks of clothes. It can also be prepared at home. Learn how to make it…
This stuff is important
Needle, thread, catchy, 20X20 inch 100% cotton cloth, 4 clean shoe lanyard or 4 cotton strip
How to prepare face mask in 8 steps
Take a pre-washed cotton cloth. According to the Stanford Anesthesia Informatics and Media Lab, one can also use a T-shirt or linen cloth to make masks. Now repeat whatever cloth you have taken. Cut it into a rectangular shape of 9.5×6.5 inches, this is the base of your mask.
Now with the help of cloth, prepare 18 inch long 3/4 inch wide by 4 strip needles which will be applied on the four corners of the mask.
Now apply a strip needle to each corner of the mask. If there is no strip, you can also use elastic instead. If using elastic, do not wash it with bleaching.
Now, on the side of the mask, put another layer of the mask pin on the strip. So that the strip is set further by staying between the pieces of the two masks.
Now remove all the pins and fasten the strip on all the four corners.
Sew around the mask. Keep in mind that there is a gap of one and a half inches from the edge while sewing.
Keep the mask straight and set all four edge strips at the corners.
Now make three pleats as per the picture in the mask and lock it with the help of a pin.
Stitch around the mask once more so that these pleats are set forever.
