Why should buy N95 mask in Perth today?

The United States’ top health agency says cloth masks will not be enough to prevent people from being infected with the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

An official from the CDC told the Post: “The agency is currently actively looking to update its recommendations for KN95 and N95 in light of Omicron. We know these masks provide better filtration.”

Linsey Marr, a researcher at Virginia Tech University, says “cloth masks are not going to cut it with Omicron.

Speaking with National Public Radio in the US, she said KN95 masks or N95 Face masks are the only masks which offer enough protection against Omicron when it is airborne.

“[People] should feel pretty safe because the booster provides strong protection against severe outcomes, and even if infected people are present and releasing viruses into the air, a properly fitting N95 will reduce the amount you breathe in by 95 per cent or more,” she said.
