【袁國勇釋疑】若疫情持續,外科口罩防護能力是否足夠?If the outbreak continues, will surgical masks be enough?

N95 masks and goggles should be reserved for healthcare workers. Lay people may not know how to wear an N95 mask properly as they would have to do a fit test to make sure that the mask fit a person’s facial features. You may also have difficulty breathing and feel very tired after wearing a N95 mask for a couple of hours. In general, ordinary surgical masks and glasses are sufficient for protection.
