Strict physical activity wearing face masks is safe for healthy people: Wearing a face mask does not significantly affect the ability of healthy people to do strenuous physical activity or exercise, while Code 19 also provides protection.
The study, published in the medical journal European Receptive Journal, included 12 people who analyzed their breathing, heart activity, and exercise performance while riding an exercise cycle with or without a face mask.
Although the study found some differences between people wearing face masks and those without masks, the results did not indicate any danger.
Researchers say that wearing a face mask can be done safely with strenuous physical activity or exercise, while the risk of spreading code 19 in indoor gyms is also reduced.
“We know that the main source of the spread of corona is from respiratory particles,” said experts involved in the joint study by Centro Cardiologist Monzino of Italy, IRCCS, and the University of Milan.
He said that deep breathing during exercise can increase the spread of the virus, especially within the walls, research suggests that wearing a face mask can prevent the spread of the disease, but it was not clear that during strenuous exercise. Is it safe to wear a mask?
To find out, a group of 6 healthy men and 6 women with an average age of 40 were hired.
Each individual was made part of 3 exercise tests, one phase was not wearing a face mask, the other was wearing a surgical mask and the third was wearing an FFP2 mask.
Their breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels were checked while exercising.
The results showed that wearing a face mask had very small effects on people, for example, reducing their ability to do aerobic exercise by 10%.
The results also indicated that wearing face masks caused people to have a very little difficulty breathing.
The researchers said that the lack of capacity of the people was minor and did not pose any risk to healthy people while exercising, even if they were working at their full potential.
“These findings cannot be applied to people with heart or lung disease, but more research is needed,” he said.
They will now investigate the effects of wearing face masks on daily activities such as climbing stairs or doing housework on healthy or sick people.
