In keeping with recent data attesting that the volume of exhaled viral particles is magnified in patients infected by the Omicron lineage, it seems advisable not only to reinforce a mask-wearing advice, but also to suggest that more efficient respirators (like N95 or similar) would be preferable to grant major protection against highly infective SARS-CoV-2 lineages such as Omicron.

Highly efficient respirators are needed for the Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2

Abstract

In keeping with recent data attesting that the volume of exhaled viral particles is magnified in patients infected by the Omicron lineage, it seems advisable not only to reinforce a mask-wearing advice, but also to suggest that more efficient respirators (like N95 or similar) would be preferable to grant major protection against highly infective SARS-CoV-2 lineages such as Omicron.
