Bietet ein Tuch Schutz vor dem Coronavirus?

Does a cloth offer protection against the corona virus?

March 18, 2020

All people in the Czech Republic must wear a mouth and nose cover in public in the fight against the new type of corona virus. That was decided by the cabinet of populist Prime Minister Andrej Babis on Wednesday. Medical mouth and respiratory masks, but also a scarf, cloth or balaclava could be used to cover the mouth and nose, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of the Interior in Prague told the German Press Agency.

But to what extent do cotton towels protect against the transmission of the virus?
The corona virus is transmitted via a droplet infection. To avoid this, virologist Alexander Kekulé advises keeping a distance of 2m from other people. The corona virus targets the mucous membranes of the eyes, mouth and nose. Only through these can it enter the body. Normal glasses or a cloth stretched over the nose and mouth offer additional protection. A cloth is ready for use again after washing at 60 degrees. A cozy cotton cloth can therefore prevent the dreaded droplets from penetrating your face or from touching your face too often.
It is also important to wash your hands regularly, change the clothes you were wearing outside and wash your hair every evening. Since I'm a positive person, I think the last piece of advice is very important: stay calm! Because those who become infected despite all protective measures usually have a 99 percent chance of survival. Read online here
