This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The majority of people I have seen walking around wearing a mask do not know, the mask they are wearing is insufficient and does not prevent bacteria / Viruses.

When buying a mask / respirator, the important specs / standard required are N95 up to N100 and P3 / FFP3. Any spec / standard below this, I.E FFP1 or FFP2 will not protect against viruses and definitely not against the corona virus. Finally, N95 + masks must fit tight around the nose and mouth.

One additional thing to bear in mind, is that the Corona Virus particles measure between 0.2 - 0.7 Microns, I have failed to find a mask that captures and filters less than 0.3

Full 8 hours of use per filter for all day protection
99%+ filtration efficiency
Captures dust as fine as 0.3 microns
Suitable for all woodworking tasks, masonry and demolition work, fibreglass, mixing concrete, mortar and plaster, welding, hand and power sanding and many more
Available as a single mask or in a pack of 5 filters and a frame assembly
Protection against airbourne Coronavirus
More user protection vs standard N95 masks
Equivalent to a N99 filter mask

Lightweight frame With disposable P3 rated filters.|Full 8 hours of use per filter for all day protection|99%+ filtration efficiency |captures dust as fine as 0.3 microns at 50 litres per minute|suitable for all woodworking tasks, masonry and demolition W

Extra protection against the Corona Virus Epidemic.

Masks alone are useless. You need to wear full anti-contamination clothing when out in public, as well as a full facemask / gas mask.

I work with dangerous bugs at the containment level used for corona virus. I wouldnt use a mask like this unless I was surrounded by the disease. The size of the viron particles is irrelevant, the virus will be dispersed in large particles of sputum/mucus through coughing and sneezing you don't need this level of masks. The high end masks for really small particles need to be professionally size fitted, unless you really know what you're doing you'll have the wrong size or wear it incorrectly, then it won't work. Also don't forget it can get in through your eyes so wear a face shield as well. The corona virus has kill rate similar to flu, the reason WHO and others are concerned is because of how quickly it spreads
Masks are useless against it, waste of money..

You should watch last night's channel 4 news report. They had a medical profession guest and their studies showed no/very little evidence face masks prevented catching the Viral infection. Only people already infected wearing face masks may help reduce the spread of the virus

I would like to watch, the study I reviewed confirm 10 out of 10 doctors wearing FFP3 whilst caring for patients with Corona remained virus free, VS the 6 out of 10 mask-free doctors who caught the virus. When the virus initiated circulation, it was so new that doctors treated patients mask free.

Err no but my best friend is a GP
I bought some of these masks earlier this week, for both some upcoming DIY, and as a just in case for Corona :P
They are very good for DIY, comfy, and make a very good seal. But they are quite bulky for "everyday" wear. They look a bit BDSM aswell, compared to the more typical "surgical" mask or moulded P3.

Daft comment.

Ok. Let's turn it on it's head. Provide some evidence from any medical journal that wearing a paper mask protects you from the virus.

FYI, as per my description, simple surgical masks will not work. You require atleast N95+ and FFPS3 standard resp and it must be worn correctly.

Comparing an ongoing situation with things like car crashes and accidents in the home makes little sense. No need to panic, but it wouldn't take much to overwhelm the NHS at the moment would it? So there is reason for concern.

Why would you want to go to hospital if you're normally fit and healthy? People run to the hospital far too easy nowadays hence why they are rushed off their feet... Stay home treat as flu and stay away from people and hospitals so your not affecting more people...

Aren't hospitals mostly NHS? What else was you implying? Doctors? Stay clear of there too for goodness sake, as I said use common sense though that seems in short supply nowadays ...
Edited by: "Danielle71" 27th Feb
If you want to know what professionals use look at something like the Sundstrom Sr 100, with a P3 filter. That's what we use in my CL3 lab if we have a containment failure. But make sure you buy plenty of filters and buy the right size for you. The hospital I walk through to get to the lab actually has Corona patients, nobody there is panicking about catching it. There was more fear when we had monkey pox up here

They help limit contaminated people from spreading the virus, but they don’t help uncontaminated people from getting it, through the eyes.

Conventional flu has a fatality rate of 0.1%. Coronavirus has a claimed rate of ~3%, however they are calculating that figure including active cases. If close cases (recovered or died) the rate is over 10%. This does not however include people who are asymptotic, which would bring the number down.

So it’s too early to judge, but it’s worth noting the official claimed figure of SARS was 3% and it turned out to be 10%.

What is even more worrying about Coronavirus is it appears to be much harder to contain than SARS.

Ofc no one is panicking there they will be in quarantine wards.

Me and thousands of people all over the country working in factories have to have a mask face fit test every year, Just to wear a paper mask if you have anything over just stubble on your face they won't test, And that's just for dust.
If you don't have an air seal around the mask, Air will go into your lungs the easiest way it can, And that would be around the mask through the gaps, Not straight through the front and through the filter, Common sense really.

Yes, and we all know they are very knowledgeable. Always know how to google a good treatment for you...
But yes, mask won't help. Medical doctors (the real ones, not GPs) using the mask because they work closely with patients and mask protects them against the ones who can cough and sneeze directly at them. It doesn't help for contaminated air around you... but if it makes someone feel better and safer - why not? My lady has to travel to one of the EU countries, low risk etc. But there is one problem on the way... AIRPORT and small metal box with 189 people inside and close air circuit... who knows how many italians might be there?

Yes that’s why some big mask stockists are only selling to the NHS, someone might want to tell the NHS to stop wasting money on masks that are “usesless” against it.
Edited by: "plogik" 29th Feb
I'd just like to add that what ISNT up for debate is that wearing a mask helps stop people from touching their faces so helps stop you transferring the virus from your hands to your face (& then into your body)
- in this case any type of face covering would help of course

Personally Im just assuming most humans will catch it at some point (just like the flu) so Ive just bought some cans of oxygen for myself & parents as the virus kills mainly by stopping the lungs from working properly

The NHS definately wont be able to cope given the number of infected with severe or critical symptoms which is circa 20% of cases
Edited by: "bayhabourbutcher" 1st Mar
Bad news folks, looks like this is potentially a PERSISTENT infection.. folk who have recovered are testing positives again ..



As for face masks.. myth debunked apparently...
