Title: Mcilvaine March 26 webinar Youtube

McIlvaine held a webinar to discuss and debate the issues which will shape the market for masks and filters relative to the coronavirus epidemic. There is extraordinary confusion about the basic issues which will shape the market. This applies to fundamental questions such as does a medical mask provide protection for the wearer? Will the virus travel through the air and ductwork? How long will the virus remain viable? There is no consensus relative to supply needs in the future. China has reportedly ramped up medical mask production fivefold to 100 million per day and N95 masks to 1.2 million per day from just 200,000. So, it makes sense that they will have excess supply. Not necessarily. China is very worried about outbreaks in provinces visited by Europeans and other foreigners who the Chinese view as the future risk. We have quoted the CDC saying the virus would not have spread through the HVAC system on the Diamond Princess while an expert from Purdue was positive that it would have done so. An article referencing ongoing studies from Princeton and elsewhere concludes that “The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 can survive in the air for several hours in fine particles known as aerosols”. The coronavirus can live for three days on some surfaces, like plastic and steel — though the amount of viable virus decreases sharply over this time — suggests a new study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
