Tampa Bay Times coronavirus coverage

Fears of a coronavirus pandemic have spurred run on face masks worn to reduce chances of inhaling airborne virus from someone elses coughs and sneezes. Store shelves are empty and so are the stockrooms of online e-tailers, from mighty Amazon to drug store chains like CVS. Now what? Well, for the record, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesnt recommend face masks for those who are sick or caring for someone with disease. Instead, just keep your distance from others, cover your nose and mouth if you cough or sneeze, wash your hands and stay home if youre not well. At present, level of risk in the US is very low, and routine wearing of masks is not indicate, says Dr. Peter Rabinowitz, University of Washington professor of environmental and occupational Health sciences, family medicine and global Health. Masks in general are not the first line of defense against respiratory infections. Much more important are frequent hand-washing, keeping your distance from people who are sick and coughing, and if you are sick, staying home or, if necessary, wearing a mask to avoid coughing as many droplets into the air. There are also different kinds of masks that have different levels of effectiveness. The most effective is the N 95 respirator, government certify to filter out at least 95 percent of microscopic airborne particles, including viruses. They are often aimed at industrial workers to protect them from airborne particles, but also are made for hospital workers and the general public. Respirators only work if they fit tightly around the nose and mouth, which can be tricky and they are suitable for children or fully beard men. Surgical masks offer less protection. They fit loosely around the nose and mouth, and fine, virus-laden airborne particles could be inhale with unfiltered air around their edges. So makeshift substitute like bandanna or handkerchief that fit more loosely will filter out even fewer particles. Surgical masks provide less protection than N95 masks, and my guess is that bandannas would provide even less, Rabinowitz say. Denise McPherson, Nurse Practitioner at Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care, says surgical masks are chiefly designed to prevent people from spreading respiratory illness to others, but do not prevent people wearing masks from bacteria or viruses in the air. If you think you have respiratory illness, surgical mask would be the best item to wear to decrease spread to others, McPherson say. If you are well, but around someone with respiratory illness, then a respirator mask would be the best item to wear to decrease the chance of contracting illness. And to be sure, McPherson add, handkerchiefs, bandannas, and other articles of clothing do not have barriers needed to protect someone from spreading illness or from contracting illness. Masks are also designed to be disposable. Eventually, they clog up and must be dispose. Of and if you think they protect you from some viral air, be careful how you handle them.
