Fake Copper Fit Face Mask

Copper Fit mask comes in different shades and sizes, it is designed to help bring you peace of mind in the midst of the world’s deadliest pandemic. The non-slip design of most of these masks provides 30 UPF protection in a breathable thermal-regulating Smart Technology fabric that helps keep you cool and dry.

Studies have found that copper surfaces can limit the spread of bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella, as well as highly infectious viruses like norovirus. And research conducted during the pandemic has shown that it has the same effect on the coronavirus.

Those powerful antimicrobial properties have sparked the production of and consumer interest in masks containing the metal, which purport to offer protection against infectious particles. Although many of these claims may have some theoretical merit, experts are urging people to exercise caution until more data on efficacy can be gathered.

Copper-infused masks also help to reduce bacteria that cause odors. According to WHO, masks should be used as part of a comprehensive strategy of measures to suppress transmission and save lives; the use of a mask alone is not sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection against COVID-19.  READ: How Do Copper-Fitted Masks Work?

The proliferation of fake masks is threatening to destroy an entire industry and expose the global population to more hazards. CBS reports that more than 11 million counterfeit masks across five states have been seized by the Department of Homeland Security in recent weeks, and authorities say suspected victims of the scam include hospitals and medical facilities in at least 12 states.

That total includes 1 million fake masks seized today at a warehouse in Western Maryland, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced, Wednesday.

An initial criminal investigation revealed China to be the source of the fake masks purportedly made by U.S. manufacturer 3M, said Steve Francis, director of the Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, which is led by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s investigative arm Homeland Security Investigations.

“They’re extremely dangerous,” Francis told reporters. “They’re providing a false sense of security to our first-line responders, to American consumers. I can’t stress how important it is to ensure we have the legitimate masks that are being deployed to our first responders.”

Mayorkas, who called the counterfeit respirators “of no utility whatsoever,” said that a health care worker using one around a patient then becomes a danger to others. “Not only do they give a false sense of security, but how dangerous is the exposed individual?” Mayorkas posed to reporters gathered at his inaugural press conference as leader of the Department of Homeland Security. “How dangerous is the individual confronting a potential COVID-19 infection without any protective gear?”

DHS has notified about 6,000 suspected victims of the massive scam, advising them to check their supplies for counterfeit masks. READ: How to Spot Fake N95, NIOSH, or KN95 Face Mask From China
