Face Masks for Coronavirus
Whether we should wear face masks during the Coronavirus Pandemic is a question, which no one seems to be able to give you an answer!
My PPE experience with Face masks is that the best face masks can only filter down to 0.3 microns and the COVID-19 is smaller at 0.1 microns so could pass though the material the mask is made from.
Advice that has been given by the CDC, ‘if you have coronavirus then you should wear a mask to protect others’ .
Whether a face mask can protect you from being infected by COVID-19 is debatable and face mask should be made available for those who work in health care and those who are infected.
Room Air Purifiers for COVID-19
Room purifiers clense the air before we get to breathe it in bypassing room air through a HEPA filter. There has been no tests to prove whether HEPA filters can trap Coronavirus but NASA has done extensive tests on the efficiency of true HEPA filters. NASA has found that although the virus is smaller than the efficiency of true HEPA filters the filter still managed to capture almost 100% of the virus. Levoit LV-H132
Lock Down in France
We live in France and we are only allowed out to go food shopping or for health reasons. Coranavirus has turned peoples lives upside down and we are not allowed to work so we are getting on with home repairs and other projects that have not been done. Coronavirus has freed up our time! In this video I go to the local food shop and when I return I practice some DIY tasks. This video is a movie Vlog of our day
A Day in a Life of Lock Down in France for a Woodworker
Living in France during the Coronavirus pandemic can be lonely but as a creative person, solitary living is not too much of a problem. I quite like the time to make things that I would not have before. In this video, I make a bird box from scrap wood, not a big project but fun nonetheless. I quite enjoy making small projects sometimes and during this really stressful Coronavirus a little positive therapy is good for the mind.
Coronavirus Face Mask Alternative
When we keep reading in the news that the face mask is the first line of defence for NHS and Pharmacy workers. but what about us? There is not enough face masks on the planet for everyone to wear so what can we do to help reduce the risk? NASA has tested true HEPA filters for the use in space craft for the protection of astronauts from tiny viruses. If this is true we could assume that a room filtration system carrying a True HEPA will also trap COVID-19 within its glass fibre strands. We have installed a large 400m2 room filter which I am very impressed with the Levoit LV-H133 and a Levoit LV-H132
COVID-19 Day One of Lock Down in France
Well, this is a new adventure in our lives. The idea that we can only venture out for essential trips to the shop or for health reasons and not leisure is going to be a hard thing to stomach for a long time. So time is what we do have! This lockdown is likely to be dictating our movement for some while. Well, at least until a vaccine is through human trials.
