US military personnel are advised to make protective masks themselves

US military personnel are advised to make protective masks themselves

US Marines will be taught to make face masks on their own. A brief guide to making masks was released by the Marine Corps Combat Service Support Schools in Camp Johnson, North Carolina.


According to the American edition of the Marine Corps Times, the US Marine Corps School of Supplements distributed a short manual for US Marine Corps, recommending that they make protective masks from their uniform shirts to reduce the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 coronavirus.

Previously, the Pentagon issued a directive requiring all US military personnel and their families to wear face masks if they cannot maintain a “social distance” of six feet (1,8 m) from other people.


At the same time, the Ministry of Defense said that they would not give out protective masks and that the personnel should take care of the masks for themselves.

As a temporary measure, it is recommended that all people make protective covers for their faces from household items or ordinary materials, such as clean T-shirts or other clean fabrics that can cover the nose and mouth. Personal protective equipment (...) will not be issued for this purpose, as they will be reserved for the relevant personnel

- says the directive issued two days after the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a nationwide recommendation that citizens should wear non-medical face masks when they are in public places.

    They survived, even masks "clamped" for the army. It is evident that it is not profitable to issue them ... everything is recounted for money.

        It would be nice if they bought cartridges and weapons at their own expense. They want a cruise on the sea on an aircraft carrier - throw off all the crew for fuel. If you want to fire a gun, they will be deducted from your salary.
        There would be joy in the world.
        Yes, I forgot to add - let the traffic be paid for the “cyber military”.

        Now it’s hard with masks everywhere. If you consider that there are 7 billion of us and each of them has 5-6 masks a day. That's how much they need to be sewn. fellow

          Whether everyone needs 5-6 Masks per day, I don’t know, depends on the work.
          But do you know the proverb: Gol on the tricks of the wise?
          Iron the mask with an iron, especially if there is a function with steam, any virus will "boil".

            Found in an internet movie how to make a mask in 5 minutes. Only scissors are needed.
            I came after a walk, washed it with soap over the sink, ironed it and the mask is ready for use

      Out of 700 with a tail of billions of dollars, there is no way to carve out for protecting masks. Increase the Pentagon’s budget by another 20-25 billion?

      A very correct methodology for solving the problem. I’m sure that about thirty years ago, Russians without a command “from above” would start making masks and disinfection. And everything would be found in a warehouse or pharmacy. And now they are listening to the mantras of Manturov: "compulsory certification", "licensing", "competition" ... Well, wait.

    Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin instructed the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Education and the Federal Penitentiary Service to involve soldiers, students and prisoners in the production of personal protective equipment.
    The Ministry of Defense said they did not consider it "advisable" to force the military to sew masks, saying that they had stockpiles of personal protective equipment and were planning to buy another batch of masks for their own needs.
    The Rosgvardia referred to the fact that it lacks production facilities "for the specialized production of personal protective equipment in an industrial way." but for themselves they sew 12 thousand masks per day

          In addition to 2 excellent gas masks, I also have 2 packs of respirators (20 pieces per pack) of "class" FFP2 (12PDK), we use with my wife. 4 respirators per person. They are numbered. As long as one is used, the other 3 are on vacation, 3 days is enough to "resuscitate" the respirator, as some pros in the same USA use them. Used only when visiting shopping centers (crowds). My mother also has Soviet gauze dressings, very high quality, but she rarely comes out, we bring food. hi

    Yes, nowhere are masks and other protective equipment lacking in the midst of an epidemic. I strongly doubt that in the bearish corners of China everything was in abundance. At least just where to store such cyclopean stocks? So self-reliance and mutual support with this uncomplicated product is the right way. Pens do not fall off, higher education is not required. In the USSR, in hospitals, nurses and hostess sisters dealt with this.

    recommending that they make protective masks from their uniform T-shirts to reduce the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 coronavirus.

    This will be an anti-dust mask that will not even filter out bacteria, I'm already silent about viruses. These certified medical masks incorporate a filter element charged with electrostatics. Due to this, bacteria "stick" to the filter element. Without this fundamental feature of production technology, all pseudo-masks, this is a dangerous work for health. I used to be a Soviet schoolchild, and at the NVP lessons I was taught to sew about the same masks as these unfortunate marins, but such masks work well only against one thing: against dust. Against radioactive dust ...

      Firstly, they are not sewn.
      Those that sew, namely PTM-1- are much, much more complicated.

        The size of the virus is an order of magnitude smaller than bacteria. In particular, the coronovirus has a diameter of about 120 nm (about 0,12 μm) and is not visible in a conventional microscope. So through a mask of ordinary textiles or even special fibers, he will crawl through without hesitation. It also passes through filters, including special ones, for fine cleaning, which are designed to separate bacteria. Of course, there are tools for separation and viruses - but they are not cheap. Special materials of this kind in the USSR were developed under the guidance of academician Sokolov-Petryanov at the Institute. Karpov, produced in the Baltic States and intended for use in some batteries. After the collapse of the USSR, technology was given for nothing to the USA, which allowed them to cheaply reduce the cost of chip production. Now such materials are produced in Elektrostal for the needs of Moscow Region.

            Very simple: just like a particle of tobacco smoke freezes. The virus is even smaller than this particle. You can calculate it yourself if the techie and remember the Stkos equations, and make sure that the sedimentation rate of the virus is only about 0,01 mm / s, which is much less than the speed of random convective flows in the air. It is worth adding that viruses from the nasopharynx, of course, do not fly out - drops fly out. But small droplets dry out in a matter of seconds, and practically their contents remain.

              I'd rather, as an artilleryman, count probabilities. That the virus manages to survive, then rise into the air and independently hover in my way, then do not stick to the layers of mask tissue and then get to my mucous membranes.
              I think this probability is much, much lower than the probability of catching the virus from droplets of saliva and sputum released by the carrier during sneezing / coughing / breathing. Moreover, it will be so small that it is more likely to die from a meteorite

          The fabric mask protects against aerosols from droplets of saliva with virions (particles of the virus) that fly out of the patient’s mouth and hang in the air for several minutes.

          On their own, virions do not fly through the air, because, unlike unicellular bacteria, they cannot physically tear themselves away from their carrier - the mucous membrane, skin, particles of saliva, urine, feces, etc. Virions without media can be transmitted by contact - from door handles, goods in the store, etc.

          For very small carriers of virions, there are membrane filters that work on the principle of osmosis (due to the forced creation of reduced pressure in the volume of the respirator when inhaling) and allow only air molecules (O2, N2, CO2, H2O) to pass through, but do not allow larger molecules of chemical OM, bacteria and any biological compounds up to prions, which are an order of magnitude smaller than virions.

                  Drops of aerosol, falling on the fibers of the mask fabric, are absorbed by the fibers. The absorbency of the mask is limited to approximately 2 hours.

                      I already wrote - virions without a carrier (drops) do not move in the air, in case of droplets being absorbed by the mask, the virions pass into the fabric. After two hours, the absorbent capacity of the tissue is exhausted and drops with virions pass to the face.

                        you inspire confidence in people with your posts. for me, biosafety is the same as for virologists themselves. only quarantine is so effective. but for the authorities, it seems that quarantine seemed too expensive, even at the level of closing borders and isolating all arrivals from behind the hillock. China, however, these measures have been introduced. Well, then continue to amuse yourself with the hope of masks, although you can pick it up from surfaces and from clothes / shoes.

                        here we have a paradox ... there are a lot of stupid people and at the same time it’s not enough. but if you inform and take measures, then even the effect of the mask will be there. It is, of course, but in a complex at times. they threw in that the tuberculosis vaccine saved us all, that’s why there were few sick people ... I argued strongly on this topic with a different one, raised arguments. a friend is not an unintelligent person, everything is normal with brains).

    A medical mask protects against the virus in the same way that a thong is protected from the cold. Even certified. Bacteria are usually much larger than viruses, and they can be examined with a conventional microscope. Viruses are about 1000 times smaller than bacteria and are visible only under an electron microscope. Bacteria are unicellular organisms that breed independently of other organisms. Viruses need the help of a living cell to reproduce.

    At the same time, the Ministry of Defense said that they would not give out protective masks and that the personnel should take care of the masks for themselves.

    As a temporary measure, it is recommended that all people make protective covers for their faces from household items or ordinary materials, such as clean T-shirts or other clean fabrics that can cover the nose and mouth. Personal protective equipment (...) will not be issued for this purpose, as they will be reserved for the relevant personnel

    Cool ! And this is the US Army!
    What is being done in countries with a less affluent ministry of defense is scary to imagine ................

      See for yourself: in addition to airborne droplets, is there a contagious route of transmission of the coronovirus? So you need to sew the mask immediately with mittens sewn to it winked

    Correctly! How are they going to bring democracy around the world, even if they themselves cannot protect themselves from the virus! We must also oblige them to purchase small arms and ammunition with our own money! And you must pay for the rental of military equipment! The defense of democracy is not trawl-wali! It is an honor! wassat laughing

          The main thing is that the doctors do not bend, they are a priority. And they must be provided even in the most negative scenarios.
          Because everyone is saving up ... Except for China, which has already managed to expand production.

    Seeing even under the threat of force, no one is giving up, I had to sew by myself.
    We ought to send them humanitarian aid, Soviet training manuals for cutting and sewing courses.
