This information has caused many Vietnamese consumers to worry whether this product will be available in the Vietnamese market or not.
Concerning this issue, Mr. Nguyen Minh Tuan, Director of the Department of Medical Equipment and Medical Works, Ministry of Health, said that this agency has not received any specific warning information about this mask product. But with a warning from a number of foreign newspapers, Mr. Tuan said he would verify the information.
According to the leader of the Medical Equipment and Works Department, if the above warning is sound, people should not worry.
Mr. Tuan said that the possibility of such Chinese mask products circulating in the market is very low because Vietnamese enterprises are actively producing to supply for the domestic market and also export to other markets. different market.
However, in order to ensure safety in the production of masks, Mr. Nguyen Minh Tuan said that the Department of Medical Equipment and Health Works will coordinate with relevant agencies to inspect production facilities. masks using raw materials originating from China.
According to the reporter, information from the General Department of Customs said that the code of SNN200642 masks imported to Vietnam was not recorded.

However, during quality testing, Health Canada discovered that the familiar blue disposable mask originating in China contained microscopic graphene particles and, when inhaled graphene, can causes serious lung damage.
According to CBC News, Graphene is a very thin, durable material used in the fabrication, but it can harm the lungs by inhalation and could cause long-term health problems. In the technological revolution, Graphene has always been seen as a magic material.
However, recent studies have shown that graphene has formidable damage to lung cells. A team of biologists, engineers and materials scientists at Brown University tested graphene's potential toxicity on human cells. What they found is that the jagged edges of super-sharp and super hard graphene nanoparticles can easily penetrate cell membranes in human lungs, skin and immune cells.
