Before you buy the face mask for coronavirus, you may ask what kind of face mask for coronavirus?
My answer is N95 face mask is the best.
But as you know, the N95 face mask is expensive and only can use for 4 hours. Unless you need to contact the infected directly, there is no necessity to wear an N95 face mask. And if you wear an N95 mask for a long time, it may damage the lungs or cause suffocation.
So, if you are in public place or don't contact infected directly, Surgical Face Mask is enough. But if you need to contact infected, wear an N95, please.
We have generated an infographic about how to choose the face mask for your reference.
And here are some topics you may interest in.

N95 means it can filter 95% the particles in the air. So, N90 is 90%. If you don't have N95 mask, N90 mask is plan B.
YES! The main route of transmission of the virus is droplets in the air. Masks will filter parts of them. So, it will reduce the possibility of infection.
Don't trust some media said the mask is useless. Have you seen any nurse or doctor doesn't wear mask during surgery? Those writers are irresponsible. Maybe they have prepared enough masks for themselves.
Although the mask doesn't ensure you will not be infected, at least it improved your protection level. So, prepare masks for yourself. Masks are cheaper than hospital bills.
