Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
The problem with airborne contagion is just that, they’re airborne and that means you’re at risk of being exposed to them if you’re breathing. Which, of course, is something all of us are doing at all times! The issue with airborne viruses like the coronavirus is that the virus molecules are microscopic and able to pass through any type of surgical mask or fabric covering that might be over person’s mouth and nose.
The N95 type of face mask that is currently in demand as an effective mask for coronavirus is different.
It’s the type that up until recently you’ve probably only seen demolition and hazmat site workers wearing on job sites, among other examples. These masks provide the airborne contaminant risk that a surgical or cloth mask will not, and will provide some level of protection against getting Covid-19.
The N95 mask is only effective in instances where your risk factor is exposure - being within 6 to 6.5 feet of someone who is a carrier.
One thing that’s important to remember about the N95 mask or any other type of effective coronavirus face mask is that they only defend against contracting the coronavirus by inhaling the virus. You can also contract the virus through your eyes.
Plus, a more common way people are getting coronavirus is through direct contact - coming into contact with surfaces with the virus molecules on them, and then touching their face.
A fabric mask is helpful to prevent the spread of coronavirus by limiting exposure of it to others if you are a carrier of the virus. Again, keep in mind it is possible to have coronavirus and not be aware of it - an asymptomatic carrier. The only type of virus face mask that will preventing contracting the virus is an N95 mask or a full respirator type mask, and that type of mask is to large and cumbersome to be worn in everyday life.
Some people will ask ‘what about surgical masks’, and do surgical masks protect against coronavirus? As we discussed above here, a surgical mask or bandana will not protect you from inhaling coronavirus. It will prevent you from transmitting the virus if you are an asymptomatic carrier, and so they do have some benefit.
There’s not much to say for where to buy an N95 mask. The situation currently is that these masks are needed for frontline healthcare workers around the word and that of course has to be the priority. You may be able to find them online or at a home hardware retailer if they might have some stock in the store.
The good news in regards to where to buy N95 mask is that countries all around the world are ramping up their own production, and there may be more quality coronavirus face masks available to consumers before long.
