Delhi Smog: Your guide to buying the best pollution mask
The pollution is here to stay for another week and due to the lack of wind and precipitation there is no sign of respite.
Since the day after Diwali, the Delhi Smog has been a constant in the city. According to experts, the pollution is here to stay for another week and due to the lack of wind and precipitation there is no sign of respite.
Most offices are still open, leaving no option for employees to evade the alarming air pollution. In such a scenario, it will be wise for a person to use special air-pollution masks if at all they need to venture out of their houses.
The masks are available in N95 and N99 variants which are degrees of filtration. These respirators are designed to offer maximum protection without hampering the breathing pace. The disposable respirators offer around 95 per cent protection against air-pollution.
While all these options are generally available in the market, there is a sudden shortage in supply due to an unprecedented demand. Interested buyers can still buy the products on e-commerce websites like Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon.
