FABRICS WITH A STATIC CHARGE,

LAYERED WITH  600 THREAD COUNT COTTON, FILTERED OUT MORE AEROSOLIZED PARTICLES (THE TYPE EMITTED DURING SPEECH) THAN N95 MASKS.  READ THE STORY, MAKE A BETTER FACE MASK.

ANY GAP IN YOUR FACE MASK LOWERS

 FILTRATION

EFFICIENCY BY UP TO 50 PERCENT, A NEW STUDY SHOWED. See video on making no gap masks here,or on MAKing 

DARtS THAT CLOSE THE GAPS here.

 

Hear and see how invisible droplets emit during speech. Researchers used strong laser technology to light up the spray of otherwise unseen particles that become "aerosolized"during speech. Don't have time? The left video is short, or go to 01:05 in the longer video on the right to see the magnified spray.

Up Close and Personal: How Scientists Visualize Microscopic Enemies.

 

Visual artist Austin Athman colorizes a SARS-CoV-2 image at NIH-NIAID’s Rocky Mountain Lab.

 

You might have seen beautifully colored images of magnified viruses and bacteria in news stories and on the covers of scientific journals – particularly the SARS-CoV-2 images (the virus that causes COVID-19) appearing everywhere.  While the

This scanning electron microscope image shows Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (orange)—also known as 2019-nCoV—the virus that causes COVID-19—isolated from a patient in the U.S., emerging from the surface of cells (gray) cultured in the lab.
