CusMask safe for use: Alfred Sit

May 9, 2020

The CuMasks have undergone strict testing and certification processes before the product will be distributed to help people combat the COVID-19 virus, Secretary for Innovation & Technology Alfred Sit said today.


Mr Sit’s remarks came amid public concerns over the safety of the free reusable face masks that the Government plans to distribute to all Hong Kong citizens.


Addressing reporters after attending a radio programme this morning, Mr Sit said: “The product has gone through a very comprehensive and clear testing and certification process.


“The product can fully comply with the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) F2100 Level 1 requirement, so that the product can fully meet the need of protecting our people from COVID-19.


“I have to emphasise that this whole process must be done by proper laboratories and that’s what we have done.”


Mr Sit noted that a dedicated website on the CuMask has been set up that contains information on the testing reports of the masks.


“For those people who may not have a complete understanding about our product, they may go to our website so that they can see the reports and certificates.


“I fully hope this product can help our people to combat COVID-19.That’s what we would like to do."
