Description: Following the global spread of the COVID-19 virus, governments have desperately resorted to various methods such as social distancing, quarantine, telecommuting, cancellation of large gatherings, stay-at-home orders, and the mandatory use of masks. Despite the successful outcomes of these policies in controlling the number of patients, social distancing and quarantine policies have damaged the economy and people's lifestyles greatly. Therefore, countries now attempt to reduce social restrictions and recommend using masks to people. Masks in public places can reduce the risk of disease through inhaling infectious droplets. In other words, masks act as a barrier and significantly reduce the possibility of viral droplets entering our respiratory system. This library study aims to evaluate the performance of nonwoven fabrics used in respiratory masks and the effect of nanotechnology in increasing their quality to better control the coronavirus.
