Under ‘Big Summer Sale’ Amazon is selling its highly rated a 100-piece disposable face mask set for under $35. These are available at a 25% discount down to about $33 compared to usual $45 price. Amazon has a stock of its bestselling disposable face masks and more than 12,300 reviewers acknowledge their reliability.
The masks come in two packs of 50 and will take a week to deliver. This surgical mask consists of three layers of sanitary filtering according to the product description; an inner layer of cotton, a filtering middle layer and an outer non-woven layer.
These masks are equipped with soft universal shaped elastic ear loops designed to be worn for hours without pain or irritation in the ears and has perfectly adjustable nose clips to fit comfortably over the nose.
Recently, Duke University published a study this month saying the three most effective types of face masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus are N95, three-layer disposable mask and cotton mask. There were 14 types of face masks used in the study.
According to a study by the University of Chicago and the Argonne National Laboratory, gaps between a mask and the face may be considered 60 percent less effective than well-fitting masks. The CDC also recommends that masks having at least two layers of fabric are effective.
Other than disposable masks, there are plenty of face mask options out there. As part of the ‘Big Summer Sale’, Amazon has slashed many popular items prices in addition to masks, such as Apple’s AirPods with a 15% discount, including a wireless charging case, and various Shark Vacuums for a maximum 41% discount.
