Assessment of a respiratory face mask for capturing air pollutants and pathogens including human influenza and rhinoviruses

In the article that appeared on Page 2059-2069, Vol 10, No 3 (March 2018) Issue of the Journal of Thoracic Disease (1), there was a typo in one of the annotations of Figure 2. Thus, the annotation of “Scanning electron micrograph image of filter layer (non-woven polypropylene, met-down)” should be corrected as “Scanning electron micrograph image of filter layer (non-woven polypropylene, melt-down)”.

Figure 2 Schematic of the test mask showing the various layers.

Therefore, the correct Figure 2 should be shown as below:

The publisher regrets the error.
