If you already have a 3M 07000 series N95 respirator, 3M makes an adapter so that the respirator can use N/P100 filters. 3M Adapter #502.

FWIW, a physician close to the cdc was still downplaying the whole thing, BUT,

But then went onto to suggest Not so subliminally that “it wouldnt be bad to give some thought to what you would do for food and money if you were suddenly quarantined?”

The economic impact of this is going to be significant.

To reduce the chance of getting sick in general, load up on probiotics, Vitamin C and Vitamin D. If you're in public and hear someone coughing...walk away to at least 6 feet distance if you can!! If you have to travel on a commercial plane, try to get a window seat and keep your air vent on (yes, ON). Bring a pack of Lysol wipes and wipe down the tray table and armrests (sounds like overkill, but the virus can live on hard surfaces for 24-hours) Use paper towel to touch handles like the toilet flush handle, toilet seat and lavatory faucet handles.

Wash your hands a lot, keep hand sanitizer with you and use frequently after touching surfaces in public (door knobs, handrails, etc).

^^^^^ This ^^^^^

Isn't there a N99?
Don't know...But appreciate the heads up.

PS just looked, that looks more like it is design for dust. N95 is still the gold standard for viruses and as far as I know of course.

This is the exact one I use, note it says 1860 medical along with N95...As mention, I take chemo pills every day so I have to use these in public during flue season (like food shopping where it is impossible to avoid people coughing etc). I've been doing it for many years with great success.

Yep. As well as N100 filter masks.
Never heard of them. Thanks.

I'd take a second look at the N99. I vaguely remember something about it being better for germs than the N95.

Whether one decides on the N95, N99, or N100, maybe we should grab them while we can. Hopefully, they are still out there.

I do hope everyone "gets" that the C-virus although bad is nothing compared to how many people die each year from the run in the mill flues. Of course media makes a spectacle of everything new (ie C-V), but not routine (regular flues).

70000 have been sickened by the coronavirus in the world. 2700 have died.

Every year nearly 500,000 die worldwide from the regular flu. Think the media is overblowing this a bit.

I'm wondering if it might be getting extra attention because where what happens annually with the regular flu is well known and not unexpected (and there's at least well-developed immunization programs), what's happening with coronavirus has caught authorities a little offguard and they are playing catchup which is not a good position for them to be in.

For the first time, I'm beginning to view this subject as serious to the U.S., even though it has not yet come close to "home".

A lot of bad news today from northern Italy ... still a long distance from the U.S., but also a long distance from the Wuhan, China epicenter.

From what's occurring (various news reports) wherever this virus "hits home", one lesson is that it appears wise to have a large stockpile of basic food and necessity items. (Forum members need not be reminded that means of SD are always advisable, even in the best of times/circumstances).

Probably too soon for anyone in U.S. (with no international travel plans) to go into some kind of extreme response mode, but I don't think it's too soon to stock up, pay attention, and begin to consider this a serious potential rolling "disaster". Obviously it is already a disaster in parts of China and perhaps a few other places. It's difficult to say where, when, and how it will be stopped.

Good point Flight Medic. I was shocked when i first heard somewhere around 80% of our meds come from China...To your point, Maybe President Trump and Congress should Order Insurance carriers to pay for the brand name meds without the exclusions typically used to skimp and exclude their use.

Fish, thanks fpr posting those numbers, it quantifies for anyone half rational to see what I posted directly above yours.

Atlas, just an fyi, the flue "immunizations" are not as effective as the medical establishment would like us to believe. There was a really good article in the AARP magazine last fall exposing a lot of the truth here. More and more take the flue shot every year, but more and more people are getting the flue. I don't exactly remember the #, but the shot had a horribly low rate of working, I know it was below 50%. In our country alone, never mind 3rd world, 36,000 die of flue every year (that is well above the number who died in the Revolutionary war for example)....

I do of course condone what POTUS and the M-establishment is doing to fight C-Virus, but if I say the media is hyping C-Virus it is indeed an big-understatement. They do it because it puts butts in seats (viewers), and for the Lefty-Media it provides another vehicle to disparage POTUS with lies.

Alot can and will happen in the next 12-18 months, which is the timeframe for any kind of vaccine, regardless of its effectiveness. Exposure can be in the neighborhood of 40%.
The economic impact can also bring things to a screeching halt as evidenced by the last 2 days in the DOW. POTUS was right AGAIN 3-4 years ago by saying we’re too dependent on China for things. Just another reason he needs to be re elected, ALONG WITH GETTING CONGRESS BACK AND HOLDING THE SENATE, but now the liberals are in typical fashion, claiming Trump isnt handling Co19 properly...:biglaugh:

It is disgusting that our politicians over the years have made us so vulnerable to China in so many way. There is a lot of bad stuff they can do to us if we ever had a war with them, even a limited war.

I have to try to find out if my chemo pills come from there, it is called Imbruvica and also goes by the name of Ibrutinib.

These sort of medical threats always turn out to be a buying opportunity. Can't say when the best time to buy, but the low prices will not last because the slow in economic activity is restarted quickly once the panic subsides. (The markets sold off also because they had a humongous run up to now, and it was just "waiting" for a reason to go down).

I am glad this happened now rather than later this year so it doesn't impact the Election. 3-6 months from now, in all likelihood, things will be normalized in the markets.

So far the main outbreaks(known outbreaks) appear to be China, South Korea, Iran, and Italy. Isolated cases are popping up all over the place. Unfortunately, we have no idea how "isolated" these cases are, since many of them are in countries that don't report.
A Korean Airlines flight attendent has just been diagnosed with it after flying to Los Angeles and spending some time there.
