Let’s flatten the curve together! We at Makeree, which in normal times help amazing companies create interactive manuals for their products, created a 101 walk-through guide on making your own mask at home and a how-to wear a mask properly guide, for maximum protection.
Whether we like it or not, the Corona era is upon us and we need to react and take safety precautions accordingly. What is most difficult in this period is the uncertainty behind what precautions we can take that will help lower the spread and save lives. So far, the world has been told to wash hands for more than 20 seconds after entering the house, and people have stock bought toilet paper, hand sanitizer and other various products promising better hygiene. The new topic on everyone’s mind now is the question of masks, and how do they help prevent the spread of the disease?
Most of us don’t realise that COVID 19 is spread through droplets that leave your mouth when you speak, meaning that if everyone wears a mask the viruses spread will decrease dramatically. Whilst it has not been proven that masks can prevent a person from catching Coronavirus, they do help contain the spread of it if someone does have it. The CDC (Centers for disease control and prevention) have recommended that all citizens use either a surgical mask or cloth fabric to cover the mouth and nose to help lower the risk of spreading the virus.
In the how-to hygiene guides we have assembled to help inform the public of the importance of using a mask, we have also included a guide to making your own, using only a T-shirt, paper towel, and scissors. We look forward to seeing what designs you come up with!
