Your problem is the supply, not the KN95 standard.ilovevideogames wrote: ↑ That is correct. From everything I have researched, the KN95 are extremely disappointing. They let air in through the front as well as the sides. It even has perforations. It lacks a nose clip.
I am still in dire need of a true N95 mask as I have a mother going through cancer surgery this Fall and I'm going to have to source her the best mask I can find. I was hoping the KN95 would do the trick but when I received one, it was no better than the dollar store KN95s and offered poor protection.
If money is not a concern, buy KN95 direct from bydcare.ca. The State of California ordered $1B worth of supplies from BYD after they were satisfied with the quality of the initial orders.
Otherwise, find some friends who work in life sciences. Many of them have priority from scientific supply companies because they're doing COVID related research.
