Central government manual for making face masks contained incorrect dimensions

The instructions on the website of the national government to create a mouth mask from a sheet or old T-shirt contain incorrect measurements for months, the Ministry of Health confirms Saturday after news from Kassa. The government had incorrectly converted US inches to centimeters.

The instructions on the website of the National Government to create a mouth mask from a sheet or old T-shirt contain incorrect dimensions for months, the Ministry of Health confirms Saturday after news from Kassa. The government had incorrectly converted US inches to centimeters.

As a result, masks were too big and did not fit properly, making the masks less effective.

Since the summer, the government had taken over a manual from the US government, Kassa writes. It uses pieces of fabric of 10 inches wide and 6 inches high, which is 25.40 centimeters and 15.24 centimeters.

However, in the Dutch manual, patches of fabric measuring 27 by 20 centimeters were mentioned. Other dimensions were also incorrectly calculated.

A few hours after the message from Kassa, the national government published a new instruction online, in which it was written about pieces of fabric measuring 25.4 by 15.2 centimeters.
