Masks
« on: March 31, 2020, 08:27:23 AM »
Someone is selling KN-95 masks from China near me. 60 shekel for 2 or 100 shekel for 4. It says Naisian on them. Are they worth buying? If I have a beard, will they do anything for me? I think they said they are washable? Is there such a thing? Or are they single-use only?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

A mask is good only to protect others from yourself in case you're positive or with symptoms or just for precautions. To protect yourself from others you'll need more than that, especially if you have a beard.

Please don't post wrong information. An N95 mask will protect you. A surgical mask is to protect others.

Correct. But he said it authoritatively, so it must be true.
But on the other hand, it wasn't on WhatsApp so it might not be true.
Hmm...What to do?

Not sure how much N95 helps if you have facial hair.

Didn't see anyone mention N95 until your post. KN95 is not N95.
KN95 is Chinese standard and not equivalent.

How to make your own surgical mask. Not as effective but better than nothing

Question is if you won't, does the N95 still give some level of protection?

It still filters but nowhere near as well.

Not less than a surgical mask.

I will speculate that it is slightly more since what goes through the mask itself is filtered better but not by a tremendous amount.
