N95-esque Masks from a bra – BuzzyHelps COVID hack by Dr. Baxter


Filmed live at the hive on March 18, 2020. Caring for someone with coronavirus but can’t find an N95 mask? Make two N-95 shaped masks from a bra! First invented by Dr. Elena Bodnar (who won an Ig Nobel!) Pediatric Emergency doctor and inventor of Buzzy Amy Baxter sacrifices a fancy peacock bra so you can stay safe. Since respiratory particles are MUCH bigger than the aerosols N-95s are designed for, having a barrier to stop the asymptomatic spread is what’s most important. Some studies even found significant reduction in respiratory spread by wearing a cloth mask in the home with a sick relative. Protect me, protect you.
