Its called the N95, it is considered a “gold standard” in the personal protective equipment. this mask blocks 95% of large and small particles bu using an electrostatic filter. The filter that is in the mask traps all the particles such as bacteria and viruses, so they can’t pass through. A N95 mask cost about $5. The mask fit securely around your face, making sure that there is no loose fitting as there would be with a paper mask or a cloth mask. How is this mask different?
