We need more masks, specifically N95s to protect healthcare workers on the front lines fighting the coronavirus (COVID-19).
People are using diapers, scarfs, bandanas, and their own masks because their hospital either doesn’t have enough or is not allowing nurses to use them outside of certain areas such as the ED or the ICU.
N95s should be capable of stopping 99% of COVID-19 particles. Surgical masks should prevent about 80% of COVID-19 particles.
Thanks to groups like Tesla and Lowes who are delivering N95s to our healthcare workers!
