COVID-19, Facemasks, Filtration, Electrospinning, Nanofber-Based, Filter Media


In the present pandemic/epidemic, individuals all over the world are living in a scenario where the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the etiologic agent for COVID-19, has impacted every area of their existence, whether socially or economically, in the year 2020. Because the germs of this airborne sickness can be spread from an infected person to others when sneezing, coughing, or speaking more individuals are using face masks. Face masks, as well as proper hand cleanliness and physical separation, are recommended for preventing COVID-19 transmission. Facemasks can cause allergies and skin problems in certain people. We offered an approach to infuse natural bioactive compounds in the nanofibers of textile fabric in this brief review. Anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, and odorless, the proposed facemasks will be identified. In this study, we discuss current developments that have an impact on the filtering efficiency of mask materials.
