5pcs Disposable Protective Face Masks $7.92 (from $9.90, 20% off) @ REMAX Official AU eBay

189

Got their Cable deal last time

Realised that they are selling Mask with reasonable price, shipping from VIC.

Few people have DM me where did I buy the masks from as they can't find any available in the chemist.

I have bought from this seller and their quality is as described.

3 Layer face masks

Good to use when you need to go supermarkets, please remember you need to wash your hand before touching any part of the mask.

I know there are people believe mask to increase the rate of infection, I am coming from Hong Kong and experience SARS so I truly believe it can protect me from catching the virus.

This shop is doing a 20% discount at the moment.

Hope everyone stays indoor and wear a mask when you must go out.

          People get hung up on the size of the virus, rather than the size of the droplet from people.

          People are taking an all or nothing approach; but SOME filtering is still more effective than none; like putting a wet rag over your mouth in a fire.

        At least P2 masks are certified to Australian standards, what about these ones?

      We all going to be sick soon. Government has stopped retesting sick people to save tests.

      They aren't useless, they are very useful just not in the way most people think (blocking airborne viruses from getting you).

      1. they are decent at catching your droplets of spit. It won't help you but it will help by lowering the chances for others to get sick.

      2. they deter you from touching your own face, rubbing your nose/mouth etc. Thus you are less likely to put the virus in your own mouth/nose if you don't have it, if you do have it you are less likely to spread it from your face to your hands.

    When considering a face mask, make sure it comes from a reputable seller and can produce certification. If not, you are buying in a hope and may as well sticky tape a 2-ply tissue paper to your face. There are so many fakes out there that try to capitalise on the current situation to make a quick buck.

    Good price,bought one Thanks OP

    These are not certified and WILL NOT prevent ANY sort of bacteria/virus going through. Best they MIGHT do is for someone who is already sick, other wise they are truly useless.

    Also point, masks are ONLY good when they are dry, the moment you start sweating and they get wet, they become pointless.

    The only masks that do work for viruses are the industrial N95 respirator masks and thats about it.

    Don't give into the fear and over-pay for masks/tp etc.

      Pretty poor feedbacks about those masks unfortunately.

      •  

        You sure about the poor feedback? Add some here?

        • +2 votes

          Copied from seller's feedback section (negative feedback within 1 month)
          - thin and smaller than au standerd facemask, price drop down 20.00 within 7 days
          - 假口罩,没有任何包装。两个塑料袋装的,口罩有臭味。(Fake masks without any packaging. Two plastic bags, masks smelly.)
          - Fraudulent seller. Not from Australia. Not in the box. Don’t buy from rip off.
          - In a week, the price dropped from $85.99 to $44.99 and no outer packaging.

      The seller itself is located in China though. Considering they can set the item location to be anything you never know. But hey I'm not saying either are a good or bad deal ;)

      Don’t buy!
      Mask to prevent virus must have meltblown layer in the middle.
      This one is with paper filter ! It’s like made by tissue and doesn’t help at all. Using a piece of tissue to cover ur nose & mouth works better!

    a simple test is the light test.. how much light shines though the fabric as well as a water test, can you water through them. These look like they will fail terribly at both test

    Very expensive now. I remembered getting a box of 50 from MINISO for $5. Been using them for mowing the lawn.

    So any actual recommendations for n95 p2 masks?

    •  

      Best ones I used so far are 3M 9322A+ Aura masks. Very very expensive but far more comfortable, high quality. Used these so called KN95 as well, pretty low quality and feel like may not be fit for purpose.

    Is it even surgical mask? what's the grade on it? any credible authority tested this?

  • -1 vote

    It's nice that eBay has a report function but I'm disappointed that they don't provide any mechanism for explaining why it's price gouging to claim virus protection for noncertified face masks.

    Two weeks ago, a 100 pack of these masks was less than $20.

    These are not even remotely cheap nor will they stop the spread of a virus

    • +1 vote

      They absolutely do help stop the spread of THE virus, if the wearer has COVID-19. Few months ago = not cheap… Today = cheap. I don't like it anymore than the next person but lets face facts and stop spreading misinformation when people's lives depend on it.

    As a nurse in a Sydney metropolitan hospital. These masks will serve you better as toilet paper than protect you from COVID-19. N95 and P2 masks are the only ones that will work. However you need to know how to Don and doff the PPE in order it to work. The best thing is do not leave the house unless it's necessary. Do not stockpile P2 and N95 masks buy enough for yourself but we will need them to save your or your loved one's life.

      As a nurse in a Sydney metropolitan hospital are you saying surgical masks are useless to protect others if the wearer is contagious with COVID-19?

      • +9 votes

        As a nurse myself in a Sydney hospital, in community setting where N95/P2 masks are 99.99% unattainable, I would suggest wearing surgical masks for your protection and others. I was following government advice of not wearing mask unless symptomatic until a few weeks ago. The Clinical Excellence Commission suggests surgical masks for contact with patients of more than 1.5m apart (risk assessment) and N95/P2 for any procedures with higher risk which might imply the Coronavirus is airborne. Wearing masks is better than none. Please save N95/P2 for us healthcare workers. And please stay home :)

        • +3 votes

          i see these disposable masks as a supplement to the 1.5m rule when shopping ….once people start coughing and sneezing or talking directly into your face it might stop you inhaling droplets , and wearing a mask also makes people around you aware of the situation, unlike the bathers at bondi.

          A genuine question (no trolling) : How does this "us not buying N95" help you guys? Are you going to buy these N95 masks off eBay? I assume government supplies those orange colored ones to you guys.
          I am little confused. Please ignore my stupidity in case.

            @Ash SA: There has been incidents of people stealing masks from hospitals and reselling them for profit. Back in February, I saw someone selling on Facebook boxes of orange duckbill masks. In my ward in particular, we have to hide all masks in locked up room. Government purchases masks from companies like 3M but with soaring demand from the general public, this comes with limited commercial supply. This is the problem US hospitals are facing right now.

      As a nurse in a Sydney metropolitan hospital you need to show us where we even have a chance to have a glimpse of a P2 or N95 mask. I swear I’ll only buy enough :)

      Few months ago = not cheap… Today = cheap - hence sold out. Thank OP for posting as people's lives depend on it and there's not really another option for those who need to wear one to protect at risk loved ones they're forced to quarantine with if suspected of having COVID-19.

    I'm not so sure that these things are as useless as people say.

    For one they stop fingers to mouth and two they presumably stop particles entering the airway in the unlikely event that you sneezed on or something by a carrier.

    Mind you I'm no doctor and advice is to not wear them unless you are contagious.

    FACT: Wearing any type of barrier is better than no barrier.
    FACT: Masks do work and offer around 80% protection as shown in one study.
    FACT: Mask only for the sick is not true - it has more to do with prioritising masks for medical staff than anything else.
    FACT: Asian countries have a culture of wearing masks unlike western countries, and as such have much less infection/deaths - look at Italy/Spain.
    FACT: Not knowing how to use masks can put you at risk of infection.

      True words bro

    • +4 votes

      Strongly agreed. Granted that a paediatrician and pharmacist from Asia and a lab manager in Victoria aren't specialists in immunology, but all said that P2/N95 is the best option, and surgical masks much less effective but still much better than no mask for protection of someone who doesn't want to get a virus that's in the air. They all seemed very confident that a well-fitted P2 mask was likely to provide not just some, but significant protection. And that given the choice between no mask and an overpriced surgical mask, they'd opt for the overpriced surgical mask.

      These are not public health officers, and they weren't giving public health advice that takes into account the relative scarcity of masks and that the healthcare community might need them more than a sick member of the community. These were friends answering questions from someone with risk factors, whom they'd like to be able to have a beer with next year.

      • +2 votes

        Agreed, but I would not call P2 an “option” as it is close to unobtainable nowadays. So toilet paper mask for now, since some protection is better than none. Also- as others have mentioned, it can reduce spread from unaware carriers and that alone is good enough of an excuse to wear one.

      Well said, let people who say surgical mask is useless to suffer from the virus, this is how Italy get to this far today.

    LOL
    Some silly Billies seem deliberately ignoring the virus of COVID-19 can spread AIRBORNE,
    And, there are already many people carrying the virus WITHOUT any symptoms.

    Just pay attention to the bursting positive numbers of states everyday.

    God helps those who help themselves.

      Depend on who you ask

      Asian Yes 99% European 50% Australian 25%

      Wear a mask to protect yourself and the others as there can be no symptom during the incubation period.

      If everyone who coming oversea wearing Mask when they leave their flight or ship before self-isolated, our confirmed case may be greatly reduced.

      Form 0 to 100,000 confirmed case 65 days from 100,001 - 200,000 confirmed case 11 days , from 200,001 to 300,000 confirmed case 4 days. By reducing the number just by a few early on it flatten the curve easily.

      Problem is just that we are a shortage of any masks on Australia, people will be more panic if they can't source mask, which happened in Hong Kong in Feb.
