Where to buy P2 masks in South Africa

With recent concerns around the COVID-19 outbreak, you may want to consider investing in a proper face mask.

Face masks are a great option to limit exposure to outside particles, but be aware that not all masks are made equal. Simple cloth masks are not designed to filter out pollution or particulate matter, making them fairly useless in the face of a virus.

A P2 mask, on the other hand, is designed to filter out fine particles from the air and can offer wearers protection if they are properly fitted and airtight. Here’s where you can get one.

Just keep in mind that wearing a face mask isn’t a guarantee you won’t get infected. That said, it is still important for everyone to limit their exposure when outside, so please don’t stockpile. The World Health Organisation also recommends that masks should be worn in public where social distancing is not possible to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
