The N95 made by 3M ( approx USD$245 for 120 ).

NIOSH-approved ( National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health ) and is also recommended by the World Health Organisation as a preventative measure for hospital staff against the spread of SARS.

It also meets the CDC standards for TB exposure control and is designed specifically 

for use in a health care environment.


  • The smallest known weaponized anthrax spore begins at one full micron.
  • The N95 has been tested to keep out water-borne particulate matter to a level larger than .4 - .7 microns.
  • The known corona virus types are between .08 and .12 microns (80 to 120 nanometers).
  • The other virus type that has been implicated (paramyxo virus) is larger in size
  • measuring .15 to .3 microns.
  • This other group also includes mumps and measles. .
  • Ultimately masks or filter systems will not keep out virus particles.


Having said that the water droplets that the virus'travels on (when you breath, sneeze, cough) are sufficiently large enough to be caught in most medical masks as that is what they are designed to do.

The virus' doesn't travel on its own and doesn't last very long on surfaces because they dry out and lose viability.

A mask has added benefit of making it difficult to touch your mouth or nose which can and will limit the chance of infection.

Another precautionary measure on top of all the government recommendations would be to consider as I put operation here, install outside your back door a plastic tray with a ribbed plastic insert with a small amount of diluted bleach, by dipping your shoes after a trip to Central you can avoid bringing contaminants into the house / workplace, I think most of us have kids...

Make sure your trousers are not to long !!

Hope this helps".
