Nonwoven products for personal protection, such as masks, protective clothing and antisepsis wipes, have played a key role in the COVID-19 outbreak, with vaccines and drugs difficult to develop in the short term. Adult respirators and child respirators can filter the air entering the nose and mouth, so as to filter and prevent the particles in harmful gases from entering and leaving the wearer's nose and mouth. Protective clothing and isolation clothing allow health workers to isolate the body fluids of patients and viruses and bacteria in the air when they come into contact with infectious diseases; Disinfecting wipes can clean and disinfect hands, skin or surfaces to protect the health of the public. These non-woven personal protection products, as the public and frontline health care workers to protect against the virus, provide an important line of defense for the general public to fight the epidemic. 

Masks are used for respiratory protection, effectively blocking the spread of the virus through breathing, and are undoubtedly an essential weapon to win the battle against the epidemic. 

China is the largest producer of masks. In 2019, the total production of masks in China exceeded 5 billion, accounting for more than 55% of the global production capacity, of which 70% were exported. Before the epidemic, China's average daily production of all kinds of masks was about 22 million, among which the production capacity of surgical masks was 2.2 million/day, the production capacity of KN95 masks was about 600,000 / day, and the rest were civil protection masks and industrial dust masks used for a wide range of faces. Demand for masks has surged in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, and even the shift from exports to domestic sales is not enough.

With the development and progress of new materials and technologies, current masks tend to reduce respiratory impedance, reduce cardiopulmonary burden and increase wearing comfort while providing protection. From the perspective of the standard development of masks, it is also the demand and direction to continuously reduce resistance. At the same time, the mask should also pay attention to the dust capacity, which can ensure that the mask still has enough filtration efficiency after a period of use.
