Where to buy a MASK in Cambodia?

A facemask does fuck all to stop coronavirus. Pretty good for keeping all the dust and dried shit particles out, the flavours of PP.
Better than nothing though, and helps the wearer from keep touching the nose and mouth.

" — If worn properly, the N95 respirator is designed to keep out airborne particles far smaller than the flu. It's been tested and shown to have 95 percent efficiency at blocking particles 0.3 microns and greater in size, says Kristin Cummings, of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Flu particles are transmitted primarily by virus-laden large droplets — particles ranging from 2 to 10 microns in diameter, according to the CDC. "

Just a quick quote I found...
Depends on the purpose of the mask. most surgical masks are to prevent the doctor from breathing germs on the patient, while offerring minimal interference to breathing so you basically need to turn it inside out :stir:

Nice that they're available in Cambodia.

Seem to be all sold out in the US of A. Can't find them in any of the drugstores. Staff were telling me that every time they get a shipment in, they sell out within an hour.

Was shopping for a friend...

Masks don't prevent you from catching a virus, it's true. It's not just an Asian urban legend though. The real point of face masks is to prevent other people from contracting something from YOU. Being considerate.
I can’t help but picture all the thousands of chinese people I’ve witnessed spitting in public over the past 2 years. And the uncovered coughing and sneezing all over each other, especially in crowded places. This virus is going to have an easy time spreading, as we’re currently witnessing.

Good USA cotton...
Haha. Not a chance in hell unless you specifically paid the $15+ dollars for some gmo free blah, blah, blah made in the U.S.A. Otherwise it's from China, land of the coronavirus.
Do you think the parents of baby boomers whined so much when the boomers started changing society? And yet the whiney ones like to call young people "snowflakes." Hmm...
