Virolog: Obsolete mundbind is a false sense of security

’We have not mundbind in stock’.

How does it sound in a number of pharmacies, which Ekstra Bladet has visited. And if there finally is mundbind, it is most often the packages with the five volumes – just as one until a few days ago you could buy them individually.

But according to Christianshavns Pharmacy do you now no longer sell a mundbind at a time, since the buyer must be able to see the certification and origin of mundbindet. And it can only be on the packages.

The strong demand means that neither the wholesalers or distributors can follow. Mundbindene being torn away from the shelves, and several dispensaries provide to Ekstra Bladet, that they do not know when they get filled up again – or how big a slice they get.

this is Why there time in nethandlen, but here one should look good for, because they are obsolete mundbind or mundbind, which is not intended for medical use, confusingly similar to them, the Danish medicines agency recommends.

– You have to go in on our website or Facebook page, where we have made a list of the things that need to be fulfilled in order that there is a medical mundbind, which protects against Covid-19. It shall be CE-marked as medical equipment, and the packaging must show the equipment manufacturer, with a unique identification, which is typically indicated by the REF-number and production number, typically specified LOT numbers.

according to the filtreringsevne can mundbindene be called type I, type II or type IIR. In addition, the instructions must be in English. Is the equipment produced outside the EU, there must be information provided by a representative within the EU, explains Hanim Yassin, academic caseworker in the section for medical devices from the Danish medicines agency

– It doesn't matter which mundbind to use. It must be marked properly and be made in a way so that the manufacturer has complied with very specific requirements. The marking means that the manufacturer lives up to legal requirements the mht. bl.a. the efficiency and safety, she adds.

All sorts of modeproducenter are the most recent months started to produce mundbind, which costs several hundred dollars per. paragraph. But if not mundbindet to be only for ornamental purposes, one should then check what it says on the package.

A mundbind can easily be CE-marked without having to be certified as a medical mundbind. But the mundbind which on the net sold as ’CE mark’ and ’live up to the applicable standard’, given by their placing on the market the buyers to believe that mundbindene – because they are confusingly similar to medical mundbind – also mundbind that provides protection against the Covid-19.

Mundbind purchased at farvehandleren or other companies which sell protective equipment for f.ex. artisans, is excellent, when you paint, dusts, etc. But they are not fine enough in the weave to stop the Corona-viruses.

You can't say that a bad mundbind is better than nothing mundbind. In fact, the obsolete money out the window, because they are equal with a false sense of security.

I would highly recommend that you buy the mundbind, living up to the Danish medicines agency guidelines. In general, one can say that they are not meshed enough, the effektløse, and it creates at worst a false sense of security, says virolog Søren Riis Paludan, Department of Biochemistry in Aarhus.

to further recommend the authorities, only the use of mundbind to specifically the sick as well as public transport, and then there is the injunction in the airports and planes. But no one knows if the authorities are expanding their recommendations as the increase of new infections is rising.

– Mundbind can be effective, but instead of being negative and directly warn against all of the ’smart’ mundbind, I will also settle for on the positive show recommend that you buy those that are designed to provide protection against the virus.", Søren Riis Paludan.
