COVID19 — Are Face Masks Enough?

Truth About Coronavirus Web Site


Dr. Rima Recommends Nano Silver 10 PPM
For A Powerful Immune System

Let’s take a look at various protective measures people are talking about, with regard to the spread of various viral diseases, including the Chinese Coronavirus, COVID19. These approaches include vaccines, nutrients, face masks and, of course, hand-washing.

We don’t need to discuss vaccines, and vaccine virus shedding here, as Dr. Rima has covered those issues several times, including in her India Paper, at:

The general FDA view regarding face masks is:

“Face masks are made in different thicknesses and with different ability to protect you from contact with liquids. These properties may also affect how easily you can breathe through the face mask and how well the face mask protects you… If worn properly, a face mask is meant to help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays or splatter that may contain germs (viruses and bacteria), keeping it from reaching your mouth and nose. Face masks may also help reduce exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others. While a face mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a face mask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes or certain medical procedures. Face masks also do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the face mask and your face.” [Emphasis added.] [1]

Certain clinical study information suggests, “no reduction in symptoms for mask use alone…” — but, when coupled with hand washing, there seems to be some avoiding of transmission of the flu. [2]

Nutrients can also play an important role in supercharging the human immune system, which is, after all, our best defense against whatever is coming at us. For years you have recommended Nano Silver 10 PPM as powerful support for the immune system.

COVID19 virus has a diameter of about 120 nm. Conventional masks do not block the transmission of such particles. Special masks coated with various viricidal substances or design would have to trap the viral particle to come into contact with it so that the viricidal substance or material can work. That means that most masks are ineffective because they do not filter-out particles of that size., viral or otherwise. Beware: many mask sites claim that their masks are viricidal and specifically able to stop (or “kill”) the COVID19. Comb them closely and you will find videos, headlines and strong assertions,… Read more »

[…] COVID19 — Are Face Masks Enough? […]


Given the tremendous shortage of N95/N100 masks I have 2 questions (which no one else seems able/willing to answer): (1) Would lightly spraying down such masks with nanoparticle silver – either during or after each use or both – serve to prevent and/or sterilize those particular masks so they could be used more than once? (2) Either in addition to or alternatively, would putting the masks under UV light between uses kill the virus on the mask (referring to a UV source anyone could get like a “grow light”). Thank you.

Dear Dr. Rima,
Where did you get the information that the COVID19 virus has a diameter of about 120 nm?
Best regards,

One cannot transfer a virus. A virus occurs within a toxic cell within the body. When your body becomes toxic there are a chain of events which occur within a cell. The cell detoxifys itself from the toxic build up hence the body becomes a bit ill for a moment. After the cleanse one returns back to feeling better. A virus is a dead thing. Do basic cellular biology to find the facts.


Robbin, what you have written makes no biological sense, at least not to me. Viruses are “dead things” in that they are not alive in the sense of higher organisms, but they can replicate after they penetrate a cell wall and hijack the DNA mechanism of that cell. Once they have done that to the point of bursting, the cell is destroyed and the newly-minted viruses are free to repeat the cycle. The immune system, when functioning properly, has mechanisms to stop this cycle. But you most certainly can transfer a virus through a variety of mechanisms including droplets, water,… Read more »
