#parent | #kids | This Is the Best New Mask for Avoiding Coronavirus, According to a Lung Doctor | #parenting | #parenting | #kids

“There’s no true way to prevent getting coronavirus,” says pulmonologist and internal medicine specialist Dr. Mike Hansen. “It can travel 27 feet when it gets airborne.”

There are ways, however, to decrease your risk of contracting the virus, including maintaining personal hygiene and social distancing, as well as wearing a mask. In a previous YouTube video, Hansen cited the N95 respirator mask as one of the best options for reducing your chances of inhaling the virus, but noted that at present the CDC isn’t allowing them to be purchased by the general public.

However, now a version is available for public purchase: the Respokare Niosh N95 respirator mask, which filters out particles as small as 0.3 microns, just like the N95s worn by medical professionals in the pandemic. It’s FDA-approved, and is included on the CDC’s list of approved N95 respirators.

Innonix, the manufacturer, claims that the mask can inactivate up to 99.9 percent of virus and bacteria particles within minutes. This includes coronavirus, but also other airborne diseases including influenza, measles, tuberculosis, in addition to some allergens and pollution. The mask consists of four layers, including a soft, comfortable inside lining, and copper and zinc ions, which trap and neutralize particles. The outer layer has an acidic coating, which creates a low pH environment which also helps to destroy viral and bacterial proteins.

As it’s so closely fitting, Hansen says it could cause the wearer to feel as if they are having some difficulty breathing — but that it’s preferable to the alternatives he was wearing during his time working in the ICU. “It’s way more comfortable and I don’t feel as smothered compared to the regular N95,” he says.
