The FFP2 masks arrive at Mercadona: these are their characteristics and price
They have been waiting, but they have finally arrived and we can now buy FFP2 masks at Mercadona. We tell you what its characteristics and prices are.
Since it is mandatory to wear a mask in many circumstances, currently we can buy them not only in pharmacies, but also in other types of stores. Supermarkets are among them, and it is very convenient to buy them in these establishments when we do the weekly or monthly shopping.
In the market you have at your disposal different types of masks with various characteristics and prices. Among all of them, currently those that offer the greatest protection against contagion are the FFP3 masks, followed by the FFP2. So much so that, in countries like Germany, France or Austria, they force the use of FFP2 masks in public spaces.
Compared to disposable or reusable cloth masks, the problem is that those that protect the most are more expensive. Fortunately, for a few months it has been possible to buy cheaper FFP2 masks in the supermarket, and finally now they are on sale at Mercadona.
Mercadona’s FFP2 masks have been waiting. The Valencian chain sold Deliplus masks for adults and children, considered by the OCU as the best non-reusable hygienic masks in the supermarket. But, unlike other large stores, so far it did not have for sale the type that best protects against the coronavirus.
Now, the FFP2 Deliplus masks have finally arrived to the linear of the Juan Roig chain, and also at one of the cheapest prices on the market. The cheapest FFP2 masks in supermarkets are those from Carrefour, which cost 0.88 euros each, and those from Mercadona follow closely with a unit price of 0.90 euros.
As the company describes in a statementThese are FFP2 NR self-filtering masks (not reusable), with a filtering capacity equal to or greater than 94%. They are sold in packs of three units at a price of 2.70 euros, and you can find them both in physical establishments and in the online store.
