Mask is the New Normal/Business

in Project HOPE3 months ago

Hello and namaste Everyone

I hope that you guys are doing good and staying safe.
These days few things have become our part of Life and mask is one of it. It's advised by the health authorities and the government to wear a mask all the time while going outside.

Mask is not a new thing that we have started using in fact when air pollution is there most of the people prefer to wear a mask so that they get clean and it's also good for the health point of view. But in this year of 2020 because of the covid-19 pandemic, it has become mandatory for each and every one. It's required for everyone including children, adults, or senior citizens and in India, if it is not applied on the face while going outside then there is a penalty as well.

Many things have changed in this time of covid-19 find me and mask has also become a new business. Now I can see ee all these departmental and general stores have started selling mast and even it can be found in any shop malls be it big or small. When we are struggling for employment because of the layover of jobs and the downside of the business, this new segment of marks has given another opportunity for many to earn life survival.

In India, I have seen many shops who was selling handmade mask because it's not cost effective but good alternative for the branded masks. as far as I know then N95 mask is the high-quality mask is good for the safety purpose but it's quite expensive and in India, it cost about 6-7$ which is quite a high price.
Not everyone can afford to have multiple masks that cost this much of high prize so it opens a door of opportunity for the ones who can provide masks at reasonable prices and that too to offering good quality fabric that is good for health as well.

Even I can see more creativity happening on the mass side it's good because when things are in high demand usually it gets creative side as well and I don't think there is anything wrong because it's up to you what type of mask you want to have to depend upon your pocket and how much money you want to spend on it because we will need it for at least some more time in 2021 as well.

Thank you so much

Stay Safe

Hi @reeta0119

It is certainly a new modality for many people and I include myself.

However, what many people don't know is that somehow by using masks we are also causing damage at a general level and this is because when we exhale our Co2 we inhale it again in small quantities and that is what is harmful because that Co2 goes directly into the bloodstream.

I definitely agree this a new modern way of life.

I don't think is necessarily considered damage having elevated CO2 in our bloodstream through inhalation. Oxygen has a higher binding affinity with heamoglobin than CO2 so if you inhale both then the oxygen would theoretically saturate the red blood cells more readily than CO2. What I have noticed, as I have a mild breathing condition is that due to the increased levels of CO2 being inhaled I get out of breath more quickly and frequently using a mask.

Given that most of our aeobic metabolic processes require oxygen and produce CO2 it could well be that the increased levels of CO2 inhaled are affecting these processes by making them less efficient, leading to fatigue more easily. It would be quite an interesting study, though I'm sure someone somewhere has already done one before.

Hi @lanzjoseg
this is the requirement as of now to stay safe but as you said that is also causing problems is correct. Even when I wear the mark for 8-9 hrs continuously then I feel uneasy in breathing. I take a break for some time. Even I don't use masks at home but it's a must for outside else I may get penalized by the police. Thanks a lot.

"New normal" is actually an oxymoron... There is no NEW normal... Something is NORMAL, or it's not... And it's not normal that people wear masks... They didn't do that for thousands of years, and they shouldn't do it for the next thousand year...

Maybe currently wearing a mask can make you an illusion of safety, but it's not "normal"...

Cheers!

Hi @ph1102
Thanks for sharing your valuable comment and as you said that this is not normal. I agree with you because we are in this situation because of the covid pandemic and we don't want to be in this situation for long. hopefully, we will not be in this for long but as of now we have to deal with it and a mask is mandatory to wear all the time going outside.

They didn't do that for thousands of years, and they shouldn't do it for the next thousand-year...

this is absolutely correct.

Thanks for stopping by. have a great day

Hello friend, certainly it is the new normality, because yes, it is normal nowadays to see people with masks, now that it is the healthiest thing that is another topic. But as you say it's a good business, everything that's in fashion will always be in fashion, today it's because of the pandemic, but we know that people or the majority move based on fashions and whenever there's something new everyone wants to wear it. They look like robots. Greetings!

Hello my friend @franyeligonzalez

Hi @reeta0119
The use of masks is a big issue.
What happens whenever demand increases, creates shortages and prices go up
The same thing has happened almost everywhere in the world.
We can even get fines if we don't comply with this use.

Hi @josevas217
All of a sudden demand for masks has been increased and many companies have entered this business because some of them take it as an opportunity for business. I don't think that demand will remain the same for a few more years but for sure the next 6 months should be the same.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
