Coronavirus Safety Mask - Respirator Mask Exhalation
Coronavirus = NOT Influenza
First, let's get this straight. The Wuhan coronavirus is different from the influenza virus that causes yearly outbreaks all over the world.
They may have similar symptoms, but they are two different virus families.
The influenza A viruses that cause seasonal flu pandemics vary from 80 to 120 nanometers in diameter, with the smaller viruses adopting an elliptical shape.
The coronavirus, of which the Wuhan coronavirus is just one of seven known to infect humans, has a helical capsid that measures about 120 nanometers in diameter.
Unfortunately, the Wuhan coronavirus is new and has no vaccine. So people are opting to use face masks or surgical / medical masks. But how effective are these masks?

"A proper 3-ply surgical or medical mask, has three layers – each with very specific functions :
• an outer hydrophobic layer, which repels water, blood and body fluids,
• a middle filter layer that is designed to filter bacteria, and
• an inner hydrophilic layer, which absorbs water, sweat and spit
The masks protect patients from mouth-borne germs and work to prevent inhaling diseases. https://www.fedlan.com/
