【看英文中國郵報學英文】隨著2019新型冠狀病毒疾病疫情持續延燒,戴口罩是阻止疫情擴散的第一防線,有不肖商人藉由囤積口罩、哄抬價格,趁機發災難財,因此許多人買不起口罩,轉而經由特殊管道取得口罩。近日,一支影片在網上瘋傳,教民眾五招輕鬆辨識真偽口罩的方法。

Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, wearing face masks have become a priority for many. However, some businesses have taken to stockpiling face masks in order to elevate the price, inducing others to resort to buying face masks from unverified sources.

A recent video online has shown users five tips to determine whether or not their face masks are the real deal.

 

第一招,放在燈光下觀察口罩的材質,真的口罩內含熔噴纖維 (melt-blown fabric) 而非不織布(non-woven)。

First, you should place your face masks under a light to see if it’s made of melt-blown fabric or non-woven fabric.

第二招,把適量水倒在口罩內層,真的醫療用口罩能夠承裝水而不會漏出。

Second, pour a small amount of water into the face masks. Real face masks should be able to hold the water in without leaking.
