N95 Respirator Mask
It’s hard to think of a symbol of COVID-19 more fraught than the N95 respirator. The mask fits tightly around the face and is capable of filtering 95% of airborne particles, such as viruses, from the air, which other protective equipment (such as surgical masks) can’t do. It’s a life-saving device and as such, it has come to represent the extreme challenges of the global response to COVID-19.
This video is a brief demonstration of the N95 respirator mask, as well as some of the other masks that have been mentioned many times in the news every day, and are highly sought after.
