Researchers Identify N95 Respirator Decontamination Method Using Microwave-Generated Steam

N95 respirators are recommended by the CDC as the ideal protection method from COVID-19 and, although traditionally single-use, PPE shortages have necessitated the need for reuse. New research published this week in mBio describes an effective, standardized method of decontamination for hospitals and health care centers facing N95 respirator shortages.
