What are you doing to protect yourself

Post by mysty » Sat Feb 15, 2020 8:30 am

I am taking my chances without one but people are buying masks. Can you really see people wearing masks in France.

Urban cycling masks like these are great at keeping out urban pollutants from exhaust pipes etc that are very fine. PM5 is 5μm - 5 micrometers

Looking at photos released by the Chinese the virus is under 100nm - 100 nanometers or 0.1 micrometers - 1/50th the size

So firstly will the filter actually work? Secondly, I understand infection can also occur via the eyes - which this does not cover.

Wash your hands frequently and don’t touch your face.....much better than masks according to health service advice. Oh, and don’t let people cough in your face!
