Roaming in the present viral world have you wondered what if we run out of the N95 mask and left with no regular surgical mask? That might be a problem and honestly speaking that is a problem because many companies, that are not certified around the world, are working day and night to meet the requirement of the N95 mask without taking on notes about the quality and the working process that is needed to be done by the N95 mask.

The world today is facing the problem of a shortage of the N95 mask that is in hands of mostly rich people and poor people don’t consider it to be an important thing because they already are facing issues that make their money usage limited and make them live from hand to mouth. Not only poor people but nurses and other medical staff are reinforced to use the mask again and again which is contagious because the N95 are disposable and should not be used again and again.

Almost 3.5 billion masks are needed to come up with the shortage and the factories are running to complete this gap. But the basic problem is not the shortage of the mask the basic problem is how to deal with the pirated N95 masks.  Because you purchase the N95 mask considering it to be the original one. So here is a tip for you. Never forget to read the word NIOSH written on the N95 you purchased from a medical store or a general store. The word NIOSH is the representation of the center that certifies that a specific batch of masks with a specific approved number is the original N95 mask and not the pirated one. The NIOSH is the representation for The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. So you just need to look for these code words and the number that NIOSH made masks has on them should be on the list that is provided on their official website.
