Antiviral Mask or Mask to Mitigate or Control Corona Virus

#1
We need some advise on the proper mask to procure or order for the corona virus. Is surgical mask an overkill? Or, could we just invest on buying earloop mask?

What is the best respirator mask to handle the corona virus spread? 'Best' means in terms of price and structure.

Is ASTM F2100-11 enough to claim antiviral?

I did and it is confusing, nCov is about 0.125 microns.The mask N95 could handle 0.3 micron. The earloop does not handle less than 100 micron. I am looking for other mask which antiviral claim. I am not sure what the health workers in CHina is using.

Could you share your relevant researches in google?
I simply googled "which mask is effective against coronavirus."

I also googled "do I need a mask for coronavirus." The very first hit is from the World Health Organization -

World Health Organization said:
  • If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.
  • Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.
  • Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly.

THIS. wearing a mask if you dont take it properly (with clean hands, and with a certain motion) is USELESS.

More and more governments ask people to leave masks for the healths services are these are in limited quantities. EDIT: and they know how to use them

Please if you dont work in the medical field, dont buy any masks and stay home as soon as you have any symptoms (dry cough, fever...)

N95 are the only ones that might be effective and there are none available. Just google it. You may get it delivered in a month or even later.

From WHO:
If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.
