In fact, protecting others only, through the use of surgical masks , is no longer enough. To be sure not to take risks, it is essential to think about yourself too, thus avoiding contracting the virus, especially in risky environments such as hospitals, nursing homes, and the like.

This is why it is essential to raise awareness on the subject and try in every way to learn to recognize those according to the law from counterfeit ones.

According to Dr. Paolo D’Ancona, epidemiologist of the Higher Institute of Health, the Ffp2 masks should always be purchased through official channels such as, for example, pharmacies and supermarkets. As he himself told AdnKronos, in fact, there are also imitations around which, obviously, are not safe at all.

But how to recognize those according to the law? While this isn’t always easy, there are a few things to note:

– First of all, the inscription “In accordance with Uni En149: 2001 must be placed on the mask.

– Secondly, it must fit perfectly. If this does not happen, if it does not last over time or if you notice particular defects, it is always good to ask yourself the doubt and try to investigate the origin of the mask.
