Home Asia I beg for for a N95 mask.

I beg for for a N95 mask.

N95 masks are basically respirators to wear on face, they come under the category of personal protective equipment PPE. N95 masks are different than commonly used surgical masks. They are extra efficient in protecting the transmission of airborne and droplet diseases by effective filter layer of protection. Surgical masks can effectively protect splashes, large block particles, but it is not that much effective in blocking small particles generated by coughing or a sneezing person in addition to germs and contaminants found in the environment. Moreover surgical masks are only better for one time use and get damaged easily.
N95 mask comes under category of respirator which not only fits closely to the mouth but also provide thorough filtration of airborne particles. It is given the name N95 because it blocks almost ninety-five percent of airborne bacteria, viruses, micro-organisms and airborne that pose serious threat to health and well-being.
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 that is now in dangerously short supply. As such, it has come to represent the extreme challenges of the global response to COVID-19.
Compared to N95 masks a surgical mask is just a common type of mask that helps preventing some of the harms entering to human nose and mouth and with no fittings on the sides so as not providing much protection but on the other hand N95 masks are designed to fit closely and tightly around the face of a person creating a non-damageable barrier between human face, nose and mouth and harmful and deadly viruses. Where surgical masks cannot be reused again if distorted, N95 masks are very prone to distortion and can be used again.
Due to the ongoing shortages of masks and unavailability, I’m facing great difficulty as being a microbiologist I am working as a frontline server in these times with great exposure to the various viruses as I deal with every kind of patient that may or may not be positive for coronavirus. If anyone can help me with a N95 mask it will be a great work of kindness. I’m working in a laboratory and being at higher risk I’m in great need of N95 mask.
I beg for a N95 mask. While working in laboratory I come in direct contact with many of positive samples. Where the conditions and increasing number of patients by coronavirus is heart wrenching, I am too scared to even work with no facility of a personal protective equipment particularly N95 mask.
Here are some of advantages of this specific N95 mask listed below that will help you understand why I need it badly working on frontline:
1. This N95 mask is designed to protect from specific diseases and pathogens (viruses, bacteria, droplets)
2. It contains some coatings that inhibit the viruses to enter.
3. It is labelled to have properties saving from surgical smoke, contaminants that not only filter them nut let clean air pass through it too.
It is getting a great panic for me to not have this mask and daily going out of house leaving behind my family and on verge of getting the virus every single day being in medical laboratory while drawing and running samples. Help me with a mask so I can be safe.
