Yikes!

See if you can buy them in Germany, some still offer them as from 1 EUR (Focus has a deal, I think)

Re: Coronavirus

Germany has changed the mask requirements. Cloth masks are now forbidden in shops and on public transport (except long-distance trains).

FFP2 not mandatory except for staff in nursing homes. I really feel for them. Doing a tough job already, now made even tougher. It can't be pleasant to wear such masks for protracted periods.

I know what it feels like. One phases it out, tbh. It is just laborious.

Phew, missed that little detail. Statements on their website like "Stückpreis 14.90 CHF" and "ab 1 Stk. je 14.90 CHF" don't exactly clarify the issue!

Hehe I can confirm it is indeed 5 pieces & it makes no sense what they have posted.

Re: Coronavirus

I understand your scepticism but in this particular case I would not wonder if the masks are identical and manufactured on the same plants in China only sold without 1000% of added cost. I order lots of small things on Ali and the quality is usualy the same good (or the same bad) as of the similar items in Swiss shops, only much cheaper.

Re: Coronavirus

Does N95 stand for 95% filter capacity? Some suppliers do not have N95 in their number but talk about the 95%.

...... I bought mine at AcuMax, quick shipping:

https://www.acumax.ch/hygiene/schutz...-5er-pack.html
Sounded good until I checked the delivery-costs:

Versand per Schweizer Post oder DPD
Mit DPD betragen die Versandkosten pro Paket CHF 10.90.
Mit der Schweizerischen Post betragen die Versandkosten B-Post pro Paket CHF 12.90.
Mit der Schweizerischen Post betragen die Versandkosten A-Post pro Paket CHF 14.90.

They must be rather heavy masks
