Coronavirus Diary (44): N95 Masks and Decontamination Revisited

I’m pleased to learn that Richard Saint Cyr’s proposal, mentioned here back in March, has now hit the big time. Here’s an article in The New York Times discussing it, as well as some related proposals for decontaminating used N95 masks. (No, amazingly enough, it doesn’t mention Richard, me, or Policy of Truth.)

I don’t have an N95 mask, but got an ultraviolet lamp about a week ago. Haven’t yet had the time to put it together, but will look into whether area hospitals need any. They run about $50-$150, in case you’re considering a donation.

Obviously, read the fine print so that you’re sure you’re buying a functioning germicidal lamp capable of killing the virus, as opposed to a lemon that ends up killing you.
