MEDICOS Innovation To Help Millions Live And Work Safer In The Endemic.
Kuala Lumpur, 8 May 2022 – After bracing more than two years of COVID-19 restrictions, Malaysia has now entered the endemic phase. Following this, the government has recently eased many rules related to COVID-19 SOPs, which comes as a relief to many, especially for those who can finally reconnect with their family members, or enjoy a long-awaited vacation together.
However, one question that constantly lingers on everyone’s mind is – how long do we have to keep our face masks on? According to health experts, even if face masks are no longer compulsory in the later stages of the endemic, wearing one in a social setting is the safest way to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19, as new cases are still recorded on a daily basis.
In line with recent announcement of the SOP to continue face mask wearing indoors, MEDICOS has invested into the innovation of a cutting-edge technology that enhances the breathability and comfort of face masks for long hours wearing indoors.
MEDICOS, Malaysia’s leading and premier face mask manufacturer, recognises the need to offer comfortable but yet a safe solution to keep consumers protected as they go about their daily routines. As one of the pioneer producers of surgical face masks in Malaysia with its own manufacturing facilities, MEDICOS has been supplying hospitals and healthcare professionals for more than 30 years, way before the onslaught of COVID-19.
“The latest SOPs reinforce the importance to continue to wear face mask, especially indoors, as it is our last shield of defense against COVID-19. MEDICOS was the first local manufacturer to provide surgical mask in Malaysia three decades ago and we continue to innovate and stand by Malaysians by delivering the safest, most comfortable, fashionable, high performance “last shield of defense” for everyone,” said William Wong, CEO of MEDICOS Malaysia.
The new HydroCharge™ Surgical Face Masks are designed for the endemic phase of COVID-19, with a 4-ply material that is up to 50% more breathable than regular surgical face masks. HydroCharge™, MEDICOS’ most advanced technology to date, embeds electrostatic charge on the brand’s signature Sub Micron Filter via a unique water charged method, providing up to 3X higher ability to trap harmful particles compared to regular surgical face masks. HydroCharge™ Surgical Face Masks are also Level 2 ASTM-rated (tested by Nelson Lab, USA), delivering >98% filtration efficiency against bacteria and viruses. ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) is known as the gold standard rating for surgical face masks.
Currently, HydroCharge™ Surgical Face Masks are also the first in its category to offer sizing options for the most optimum fit:
- Slim Fit (Size S/M) – Comfort Loop
- Regular Fit (Size M/L)– Comfort Loop
- HydroCharge™ Junior – for kids (4-12 years old)
