Anyone know where I can get a N95 mask from? I'd like to be prepared in case this thing spirals. Can't find any anywhere 😫 at least not from sites I trust. Any ideas?

B&q? Pharmacy? I ordered a box of 10 on Amazon, they’re shipping in March and was limited to 1 box.

Nope.. haven't got them.. I don't think we necessarily need them right now but I'd be much less stressed knowing we have them if this gets out of control hmm

Have a look online at Toolstation or Screwfix.

Gloves and hand washing are much more important than masks.
Masks are only helpful if worn by people who are coughing/sneezing.

I did get some masks on amazon, but that was a few weeks ago and I got them to protect myself from traffic fumes. I think a friend got masks on Wowcher, but I haven't looked.

Every expert I've seen in the tele has said a face mask will do nothing as the virus is so small
It will pass through it.

The best, full filtration mask is from Screwfix.

The link is the current advice to HCPs.

I have bought some P3 masks from screwfix as we are heading to Singapore in a few weeks.

Thanks ladies, will have a look. They have said the only masks worth their while are ffp2 or ffp3 (same as N95 or N99)
