There are many different types of cloth masks on the market, 3 layers and 5 layers.
So should choose a 3-layer or 5-layer antibacterial cloth mask?
Recently, many stores have sold many different types of masks with many designs and colors. In particular, there are many types of masks with antibacterial labels that are sold for 10.000 VND/piece, but the packaging is of unknown origin.

So can those masks really kill bacteria?

In addition to the design, color and shape, the price of each type is also different. Nhi shared: “The market has so many types of masks, I don't know which one to buy, 3 layers or 5 layers is good. But usually I use 3 layers because it is enough protection for me. 5 layers is so thick I can't breathe.”
To answer the question of whether to use a 3-layer or 5-layer mask, Dony will rely on the standards of the Ministry of Health to answer questions for readers.
What is the structure of a standard medical mask?
Antibacterial cloth masks that must meet the standards under Decision 870/QD BYT issued in early 2020 must have three layers as follows:
- Outer: It is waterproof, helping to prevent liquids. This is to ensure that the saliva is not splashed in the face when in contact with other people.
- Middle layer: As a filter layer, preventing dust and other microorganisms present in the air.
- Inner layer: Must have optimal antibacterial capacity.
Standard 5-layer masks must also have three layers of the same standards as above, but have two more layers of chemical filters and electrostatic filters. Without these two layers, it does not affect the use of masks much. Just three standard layers, the mask has the ability to prevent dust, prevent saliva, and prevent bacteria, and it has optimized to 2% of its use.
For this issue, Mr. Pham Quang Anh – Director Dony . Garment Co., Ltd There are many types of antibacterial cloth masks, but to meet the standards of the Ministry of Health imported into the US market, Dony is a Vietnamese brand that has done that. And only in Vietnam, Dony can do this. Dony cloth masks fully meet the ability to prevent saliva, filter dust, antibacterial up to 99.99%.
