Just ask a genuine question.

It looks like this virus can be killed by soapy water, then the plastic waterproof gown, gloves should be able to be cleaned and reused. Or did I missed anything? I understand the mask can't be reused, as there are complicated filtering material inside.

I was also wondering if gowns etc could be quarantined and swapped in and out accordingly. Far far from ideal obviously, but is it an option in the current crisis?

I read news that USA has a few machine that can clean the mask as well.
