From Monday, the FFP2 masks are mandatory to use.

The aggressive virus mutation from Great Britain presents Austria with new challenges: From Monday, therefore, the wearing of FFP2 masks in supermarkets, pharmacies and public transport is mandatory. This regulation is already causing quite a stir. On the one hand, there’s the price, and on the other, there’s the problem of breathing. If the mask is fitted correctly – i.e. tightly – the usually very dense fabric restricts the ability to breathe.

This is one reason why the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommends wearing FFP2 masks for a maximum of two hours, followed by a minimum recovery period of 30 minutes. Dr. Karl Hochgatterer, a general practitioner and occupational physician told Austrias free newspaper “Heute” in a interview: “FFP2 masks are made of denser fabric, where you really have to suck air through. The work of breathing is therefore increased. This shouldn’t be an issue for healthy people, but it can certainly cause problems for older or sick people.”

In Austria, however, there is no such prescription or recommendation, the physician said.
