What type of protection does a KN95 provide?
KN95s are the Chinese market’s version of the U.S. N95. KN95s that meet Chinese regulatory requirements provide a 95% filtration rate similar to N95s.
KN95s provide more protection than a surgical mask because they are designed to fit tightly against the wearer’s face and should therefore let in less air and provide better protection than a standard surgical mask.
KN95s also are designed with ear loops rather than head straps.
