WHO SHOULD WEAR THE N-95 RECEPTOR?

Anyone can wear the N-95 receptors, although, doctors, elderlies and people who have constant interactions with people - shop keepers, policemen or hospital workers; should wear these marks regularly.

What makes an N-95 receptor different from face masks (surgical masks)?

  • N-95 receptors cleanse the air you breathe to 95%, ensuring maximum safety from airborne diseases. Though the normal surgical mask does not cleanse your air, it only saves you from touching your face.
  • The surgical masks have minimal air cleansing efficiency, they ensure safety from contagious diseases such as - fever, influenza, etc. Regardless, it is not completely useless against COVID-19. 
  • N-95 receptors have a longer life as compared to surgical masks. Face masks (surgical masks) are only for one-time use. People are suggested to dispose of surgical masks asap, but you can use the N-95 receptors till its expiration date.
  • Specialists suggest NIOSH-approved in the COVID-19 pandemic. Hence, it is best to wear N-95 receptors amid the epidemic.
  • N-95 receptors are expensive as compared to the surgical masks and are now facing a shortage all around the world.

Everyone.  I suspect that a better respirator is one made for asbestos removal which is more expensive. If you have any links to online sellers, please, post them.
