how do KN95 compare to N95 in terms of effectively protecting against COVID19?
Karen Brudney
33:36
WHO does NOT recommend N95s for any HCWs except those involved in aerosol generating procedures like intubation or bronchoscopy. Why are you advising something so different from WHO?
Taufique Joarder
33:57
I was wondering the same.
Bhakti Hansoti
35:05
@karen and @Taufique - we will ask at the ned
Clarence Yah
35:12
Do anyone know the particle size-pore of face masks. Which one is suitable because so many face masks are avilable now. Some may still be potential transmission sources
Tapati Dutta
37:53
What about home made masks, especially when we are talking of LMIC settings?
Taufique Joarder
40:14
In Bangladesh, government has made it mandatory to wear masks in markets and other public places. They are promoting three layered cloth masks. Not sure if they work at all. Is it not creating a 'false sense of security'?
Clarence Yah
40:49
The home made face masks are simple clothing and the pore-sizes are not known
Mayowa Tiam

what is the difference in the use of KN95 and N95 in COVID19 crisis especially in LMIC ?
HEMA DIVAKAR
41:28
something better than nothing policy..since cough etiquette etc is not easy to implement
Jason Farley

Here is the answer to the K95 vs N95 question.

In fact, awareness generation is not an easy task, especially among the illiterate and rural people. Rural people in particular. But still I would appreciate that our people in India, medical / para-medical / social activists and entrepreneurs that when a considerable number of them is aware about what should and what should not be done. I have personally interviewed few people and found that that the rigorous campaigning by government agencies and NGOs have really been effective. Though, incidence and occurance is something, in nobody's hands.
Pranab Chatterjee

Fake or spurious PPEs (esp masks) are emerging in LMIC markets...
Anima Sharma
54:03
Regarding Masks, do you think that a hanky sprinkled with sanitizer can serve the purpose, in emergency, of course.
Jason Farley
54:03
Absolutely. We have been dealing with fake N95 respirators in TB for many years. Always check the product # and source before ordering.
Jason Farley
54:57
1. Not sure you want to breath in the sanitizer; 2. Sanitizer no longer effective once dry. 3. Wet masks increase risk of transmission by increasing pore size.
Anima Sharma
55:13
Actually, the profit makers seek every opportunity, at whatever cost, for their personal gain.
Clarence Yah
56:29
I think plastic face shield in addition to face mask may be good
Pranab Chatterjee
56:53
What about DIY Face Shields?
Clarence Yah
56:56
Transparent plastic face masks
Anima Sharma
57:03
Thanks, Jason Farley. Actually, I asked so that I could clarify the doubt of my community where my NGO is working currently.
Jason Farley
57:42
DIY face shields should be fine, but depends on material and coverage
Bhakti Hansoti
01:01:12
Any other questions?
Dr. Gregora N. Salazar
01:02:41
Should we advice family, communities to wear face shields or eye protection when going to stores? Now that are many states that are opening more businesses?
Srikanth Tripathy
01:05:57
What precautions should healthcare workers take before going home if they have elderly persons at home to take care of?
