With the Coronovirus almost defeated in China our colleagues there, who are worried about their friends in the UK, have very kindly sent us their supply of brand new face masks. As they are not surgical grade, and therefore not suitable for front-line NHS workers, we would like to share this generous gift with the Wendy Wu community.
Some of you have travelled with us many times over the years and have become the close friends of both us and our China team so naturally we would like to share this generous gift from them with you first of all.
We will then be in touch with as many of our past and future customers as possible with details on how to apply so please keep an eye on your inbox. Please note stocks are extremely limited but we will get them to as many of you as we possibly can
We hope they bring you some comfort in this difficult time and we look forward to seeing you all travelling again in the near future.
Where and when should I wear my mask?
These are ‘95% Triple Defence masks’, exactly the same ones that our China team have been using, which have been so successful in helping stop the spread of the virus there.
The masks can be used to help keep you safe in situations when social distancing may be difficult such as
• Public transport
• Doctor’s surgeries and pharmacies
• Answering the door to strangers
• Confined spaces such as lifts
Please note: A mask should not be considered an alternative to frequent hand-washing and social distancing. The most effective way to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 is to frequently and thoroughly wash your hands, cover your coughs and sneezes, and maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from others.
How to wear your face mask
There is good news
While many parts of the world are still struggling with the virus, there are many places in the world that are winning the fight.
China, of course is the most well known example, with new infections almost totally confined to imported cases and great strides being made in the developments of treatments and a vaccine.
