Been a lot of cases where people got tested just because they came into contact with someone they knew that tested positive for it so they test themselves even though they feel hundred percent normal and find themselves tested positive. For those that manages to catch it and have it and are positive and don't present any symptoms ever is the real risk.No doubt. Better than none does not been "good" though
The reason this isn't the case with surgical masks is that they don't form a seal around the nose and mouth.
Again, not quite. Surgical masks catch a lot of the droplet's etc that are exhaled because it's right next to the mouth.
Just because they are n95/P2 doesn't mean they form a seal. All it means is that it filters 95% of particulate matter that passes through the filter. If there's no seal then a lot of stuff is going to go round the sides and thus be unfiltered.
Not quite. Takes 10
Not quite, takes 10ish days to form an immune response and one of the reasons it's more serious is that the body doesn't create as strong an immune response in the upper respiratory tract, which is what it primarily effects.
Those ones above you've said it will "bounce off" are carriers until the immune system clears it out.
They are not really certified n95 mask or p95 if they don't form a seal. They are just fancy surgical mask with filters pads that are rated n95 something. Which are still better then just a normal surgical mask. Actually those washable cotton surgical mask are the most bang for ur buck $$$ as it creating a physical barrier and you can wash it without throwing it away.
