Wearing a face mask is considered as a healthy strategy to reduce being infected and transmitting viruses to save lives. With the spread of Covid 19 simple precautions have become serious instructions for people to follow. Some of these precautions are: Avoiding crowds, physical distancing, cleaning the hands as much as possible and wearing masks. Using cloth face covering, mainly in public places where social distancing is difficult to maintain, is highly recommended. To yield high rates of infection against droplets and microorganisms, people are supposed to wear either medical masks or homemade ones. The latter are fashioned by household materials at a low cost, such as cotton, nylon, paper, etc. However, it is necessary to know which type of these masks is most efficient and its material contains the fiber that prevents the release of the virus.
