WARN MASK / mouth-muffle


Major outbreaks of infectious diseases have become more frequent in recent years.
However, the initial symptoms are the same as a normal cold and fever, others don't distance themselves from the patient when he doesn't show symptoms, making the patient to expose strangers to the virus as soon as he coughs. The poor air mobility and densely populated public places is the main transmission place of most infectious diseases. But it is relatively safe from 1 meter away from the source of infection.
This mask is designed to keep a certain distance between patients with cough (common cold or infected) and completely healthy people.
