Fighting Bird Flu with Masks - Still a Question Mark

Abstract:
However, the typical N-95 mask is not free from limitations, and a new type of mask has been developed by the health authorities, which promises a better protection. These masks use nanotechnology, which is enhanced with filter media to remove virus and bacteria from inhaled and exhaled breath. The first to use nanotechnology, the mask contains nanoparticles, which enhance the intrinsic filtration competence of the media by acting as a vicious absorbent to slay virus and bacteria that come in contact with the filtration system.
