The anti-microbial properties of silver have been studied by researchers for years. It kills many kinds of germs. It is used to treat public water systems in some places, used in the space stations to kill germs, and in hospitals, etc.
While we cannot guarantee this mask will kill disease for legal reasons, it does provide a helpful layer in your fight against germs! The less germs your body has to fight off the better.
Great for flu season, air travel, going in public places, etc.
The CDC now suggests wearing face cloth coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. This additional safety measure helps protect others in case you have coronavirus, but don't show any symptoms.
You should still follow other protective measures as well, and closely follow the latest recommendations from public health officials and the CDC to make an informed decision about how this product should be used

"Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) display a broad spectrum of antibacterial and antifungal activities (Morones et al., 2005; Kim et al., 2007; Panacek et al., 2009; Namasivayam et al., 2011). Moreover, the advantage of using nanosilver is that it is comparatively less reactive than silver ions, and therefore, is well suited for its use in clinical and therapeutic applications (Kim et al., 2005; Chen and Schluesener, 2008). The antimicrobial activity of AgNPs has been tested against both, MDR and non-MDR strains of bacteria (Feng et al., 2000; Morones et al., 2005; Ayala-Nunez et al., 2009; Humberto et al., 2010; Ansari et al., 2011)."
