Citizen designs a homemade protective mask for the Covid-19 epidemics

Shared by sara.di.fabio@p... on 2020-03-25 17:11

About the solution

Paolo developed a homemade protection mask because protection gears have become difficult to find in Italy during the Covid-19 pandemic.

His design is homemade and does not replace professional and certified products, it represents emergency protection when nothing better is available.

The necessary materials are:
- cotton fabric
- filter fabric
- soft plastic sheet
- sewing thread
- tetra pack caps or similar
- elastic tape
- cardboard for cutting patterns
