The right way to wear a mask when going out

◆Key points for handling masks at dinner
-When removing your mask temporarily, put it in a dry, breathable bag to keep it clean
-When removing the mask, be sure to wash your hands and disinfect your fingers with a disinfectant spray
-When reattaching, make sure the front and back sides are on the same side
-After reapplication, wash your hands and disinfect your fingers again

◆The CDC's (*) opinion on "Dinners with masks" and key points
Indoor settings such as restaurants and bars increase the chance of interacting with people within about 2m of you, increasing the risk of infection. Wearing a mask frequently can help reduce this risk.
-Wear a mask unless you are eating or drinking
-Wear a mask when talking to restaurant staff

◆Key points for handling cloth masks
-Wet or damp masks are harder to breathe through and are less effective than dry masks
-If your mask becomes soiled with sweat or make-up, replace it
-Change your mask if it becomes soiled with sweat or make-up (carry more than one if possible)
-Soiled masks should be sealed in a plastic bag until they are ready to be washed

[Functionality improved] "Message Board" function added to Smart:DR disaster risk management system enhancement service

"Smart:DR" is a disaster response system for medical institutions that supports information sharing and redeployment of personnel to emergency sites in the event of a disaster, terrorist attack, or other emergency. The system enables smooth confirmation of the safety of staff and requests for assembly using smartphones and PCs, and prepares for the rescue of victims.
In the medical field, the spread of a new coronavirus infection is considered a "disaster". Due to the strong infectivity of the virus and the emergence of mutated strains that cause rapid worsening of symptoms, unforeseen circumstances are possible.
It has become necessary to communicate across departments and professions, for example, to a doctor with a different medical specialty for a specialized opinion, to a pharmacist for the administration of medication, and to an x-ray technician for emergency tests.

Under these circumstances, we have received many requests from medical professionals for Smart:DR to enhance its functions as a communication tool. Therefore, we added a "bulletin board function" to make it useful not only in emergencies, but also in daily medical practice.
Currently, in medical institutions, contacting other departments is done by PHS or internal phone. Many hospitals rely on in-hospital bulletin boards or printed materials to send out information from the General Affairs Division to all employees. Since there is no e-mail address dedicated to the hospital except for doctors, the bulletin board function has the advantage of facilitating the dissemination of information about the hospital.

◆Background of the request: Expectations for Smart:DR's unique functions
 -The contact information of all staff members is registered
 -Simple operation and simultaneous sending to all registered users
 -Can be sent regardless of device (PC, smartphone, tablet) or application (email, LINE)
 -You can log in to My Page from a PC browser and check the contents

◆About the bulletin board function
 -You can check your contact history
 -Various distribution methods
   Can be sent directly to all staff and staff in the department
   Can be sent by the administrator or the head of the department within the department.

(Soon to be implemented)
 -Not only the administrator, department head, department and group, but also individuals would be able to send our messages
 -Threads can be set up for each content and opinions can be exchanged
 -Messages can be sent to individuals

"How effective is a mouth shield, actually?"

Transparent masks are completely ineffective in preventing infections

Taka-aki Nakada
CEO, Smart119 Inc.
Professor, Department of Emergency and Intensive Care Medicine, Chiba University Graduate School of Medicine

◆Point 1: Mouth shields are not effective in preventing infection
-Respiratory droplets will leak and spread if there is a gap between the face and the mouth
-Respiratory droplets can spread if there is a gap between the mask and the face

◆Point 2: Face masks cover the mouth and nose and are effective in preventing infection
-COVID-19 spreads from person to person by respiratory droplet infection
-The entry and exit points for airborne droplets are the mouth and nose
-In addition to coughing, sneezing, talking, and singing, droplets can be generated simply by breathing

◆Point 3: A well-fitted face mask is effective in preventing infection
-A mask that covers the mouth and nose without gaps will prevent from spreading droplets in and out
-The criteria of the best fit is that the edges (top and sides) of the face mask are in close contact with the face without creating any gaps

◆About face guards
-It covers the entire face but does not stick to the face and has many gaps
-In the medical field, it is recommended to use them in combination with face masks
