“There is no real way to prevent the occurrence of coronavirus,” says pulmonologist and internist Dr. Mike Hansen. “It can travel 27 feet if it blows up.”
However, there are ways to reduce the risk of getting a viral infection, including maintaining personal hygiene and social distancing, and wearing a mask. In a previous YouTube video, Hansen identified the N95 respirator as one of the best ways to reduce the chances of inhaling the virus. However, he noted that the CDC is currently not allowing them to be bought by the public.
But now a version is Available for public purchase: the Respokare NIOSH N95 respirator, which filters out particles as small as 0.3 microns, just like the N95 that medical professionals wear during the pandemic. It is FDA cleared and listed on the CDC’s list of approved N95 respirators.
The manufacturer Innonix claims that the mask can inactivate up to 99.9 percent of virus and bacterial particles within minutes. In addition to some allergens and pollution, this also includes the coronavirus, but also other airborne diseases such as influenza, measles, and tuberculosis.
The mask is made up of four layers, including a soft, comfortable inner liner, plus copper and zinc ions that trap and neutralize particles. The outer layer has an acidic coating that creates a low pH environment that also helps destroy viral and bacterial proteins.

Because it’s so tight, it could make the wearer feel like they were having difficulty breathing, according to Hansen – but it’s preferable to the alternatives they wore during their time in intensive care. “It’s a lot more comfortable and I don’t feel as choked up compared to the regular N95,” he says.
