Will A Face Mask REALLY Protect You From The Coronavirus?

Do you LOVE America?


    Health officials have been suggesting the use of face masks to prevent the spread and transmission of the coronavirus, which is quickly spreading around the globe.  But the real question is do they really protect you from the virus?

    The simple answer is yes, but efficacy is still not 100%. As masks sell out everywhere, it’s time to understand what they do to help.

    If you decide to use a face mask, choose a NIOSH-approved N100 mask because it protects the wearer by fully covering the mouth. An N100 mask will help prevent inhalation of 99.7% of airborne germs, which means they aren’t a totally fail-proof method. N95 and N99 masks can also be effective. They are still your best bet IF you have a proper fit and it is not loose on the sides.  Protection from debris and materials that are larger than 0.3 microns or greater can be achieved with both N100 and P100 respirators, as well as N95 and N99 respirators.

    Since the general consensus has been that the coronavirus is expelled from an infected person and remains on dust particles and water droplets in the air, these can be effective at preventing the inhalation of infected debris as long as the fit is correct. 

    Also, it’s important to note that the “N” designation means that these respirators are not resistant to oil. The “P” indicates that a P100 respirator is oil proof, meaning it should also work, but may cost you a bit more. If that’s all you can find, however,  it could boost your chances of not getting sick. But again, the mask needs to fit correctly and that cannot be stressed enough. 

    Don’t just use a mask and expect that to be enough either. Even if it’s properly worn, it’s only about 80% effective, according to doctors.  Take the same precautions you would with the flu. Avoid public places and crowds, stay at least six feet away from others, and cover your cough or sneeze.  Wash your hands well and sanitize the surfaces of your home frequently (bleach works well and it’s inexpensive), especially those often touched. Teach your children proper handwashing techniques and send them to school with hand sanitizer. Practice good hygiene and make sure you do the best you can to keep your immune system running on all cylinders.

    If this becomes a pandemic, you’ll want to make sure you have stored extra food and water to keep from having to go to the grocery store often.

      3. Will saran wrap keep you safe from a direct overhead nuclear blast? Will sticking your fingers in your ears keep you safe from these blathering idiots wanting to be the ‘President’? Will consummate apathy keep you ‘well fed’ during this systemic breakdown in the status quo? Will the US military keep the life sustaining millions of barrels/day of oil flowing so that you and yours might continue to live? NOPE.

      4. Speaking of the coronavirus, I was reminded of why I have chosen to self-isolate in Wisconsin even though I am healthy, after a disgruntled Molson Coors employee was terminated from his job and returned to the brewery with a gun which had a silencer and murdered 5 people, then committed suicide.

        The Seik Temple mass shooting occured in Milwaukee also about a decade ago, in which a totally uninformed neo-nazi believed that he was shooting Muslims, not that that would be acceptable either!

      5. I was worried, hoping everything would be over quickly to make life normal again. Very good article, thank you all.

      6. The chinese need a culling. So do a lot of countries. 1.3 billion? Welcome to your walmart shopping world you amazon, walmart, etc. buying morons. Hey man it ain’t gonna be cheap or available much longer you knuckledraggers. I don’t really give a rats ass I can go for years without that crap. No kids equals no fears either. I will be just fine no matter what your shopping habits have brought upon us. Still buying shit with your card? Hope that works out for you. Got silver? Silver will be the megastar of cures for pandemics. Learn to use an IV. Dumb assed anti abortionists want us to be like china with billions of consumers and the value of life the cheapest commodity. Most of you are way too stupid to survive because you have 0 critical thinking ability. Good luck…..

      7. Many rumors and accusations attributing Chinese people with a diet of rabid animals have been making the rounds online as the reason for the coronavirus. Finland has funded cricket and insect breeding as a low-carbon footprint alternative to meat, which for some “unknown” reason, didn’t quite set a tulip bulb bubble in the insect diet market including frozen crickets, crickets in bread, and cricket shavings in chocolate bars. I had no idea that the Finish were so creepy to even propose a massive funding program for that thinking that it would catch on. They must have been stoned out of their minds when they concocted that idea.

      8. Another Corona Precaution – Wearing non venting gas application- goggles

        Why is info so piece meal. I would think that the eyes are a membrane as well. Exposure to the same dust and water droplets from a sneeze is just as important with the eyes. We go on in steps like it is too much for us to handle, to give all the info (completely). Leaving off the (non venting goggles ) is just as silly as a loose fitting face mask.

      9. Time to thin the herd.

        • The govt (cdc, etc) isn’t saying anything nor testing anyone because the u.s. has an aging costly elderly population that is draining social security as well as welfare recipients that are in poor health and this virus is they’re golden parachute to rid society of these people!

          God will deal with all of these evil people in govt!

      10. I don’t care. A great culling of parasite takers is needed. I kinda think it will be OK if Bernie is elected President. It will hasten the inevitable collapse.

      11. Dig a hole now,it’ll make it easier for the survivors to bury you later…..

      12. Masks do not help the spread of this virus, but condoms do. In fact, I am wearing one now and I feel fine.

        • You just practicin’ fitment? Or are you bumpin’ uglies and commenting at the same time. If so, you da man…

        • Condoms from China
