According to some online rumors, disposable face masks can be reused after being disinfected with alcohol.

The fact is a face mask is less effective in preventing the virus after being disinfected through spraying alcohol. However, in places where the epidemic is less severe, disposable face masks can be reused as long as its inner layer is unsoiled.

After each use, a face mask should be put in a clean place with good ventilation.
