What is the best thermometer for coronavirus?
Thermometers have always been helpful to have at home, and a must have if you have children. However as coronavirus continues to impact people globally and a fever is a hallmark symptom of the COVID-19 infection, the need to have a thermometer at home is more important than ever. Within our coronavirus products range we have a number of clinically validated thermometers for you to choose from, including our Kinetik Approved models.
All our thermometers are easy to use and accurately measure temperature to within ±0.2°C. Due to the contagious nature of coronavirus the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the use of a no touch infrared forehead thermometer, allowing you to measure temperature at distance, both more hygienic and they tend to be very accurate.
Please note, if you have a high temperature, as advised by the NHS, to protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home and consult the 111 online coronavirus service on what to do.View our range of thermometers
Which face masks provide COVID-19 protection?
There is no shortage of options on masks to buy, but which coronavirus mask can you trust? In the Uk there are two categories of masks rated and standardised by European regulations:
1) Medical face masks (Type I, Type II and Type IIR) with the difference between them being found in the level of filtration provided. Type I face masks have a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of 95%, whilst Type II and IIR masks have a BFE of 98%. All Type I and Type II medical face masks have been tested for filtration of air from inside the mask to the outside world. This means that they can stop the wearer from spreading coronavirus or infecting the surrounding environment, however they cannot completely prevent the wearer from being infected by inhaling airborne diseases like COVID-19. Type II and Type IIR face masks can prevent large particles from entering the mouth and nose of the wearer, but they are not effective if blood or bodily fluids are present.
2) Surgical grade masks (N95 or FFP1-3), also known as respiratory face masks and recommended for use by NHS workers who are in closest contact with COVID-19 patients. They are less breathable and reduce the wearer’s exposure to airborne contaminants of contagious diseases such as particles, gases, or vapours.
