Coronavirus Protection By Face Masks

Due to the Wuhan Coronavirus spreading across the world, wearing a face mask is recommended.

The N95 mask, which is a heavy-duty mask offers better protection (95% of airborne particles are blocked) but is uncomfortable to be worn for long periods as it gets difficult to breathe.

The more common and disposable surgical masks are comfortable to wear and are more easily available than the N95 ones, but offer meagre protection, especially against airborne pathogens.
