The World Health Organisation has recently changed its advice on whether or not people should wear masks. The advice now is that masks should be worn in public where social distancing is not possible to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

As masks are currently difficult to come by though, we've rounded up a list of retailers below offering the option to buy in bulk.

What are the benefits of bulk buying P2 and N95 masks?

If you're buying masks for a group of people (say, a team of staff in an essential workplace) or are expected to wear one longer term, you may want to bulk buy masks. Buying in bulk is generally much cheaper when it comes down to the cost per item. It means you need to put in fewer orders or minimise trips to the shops to purchase them.

Masks are recommended for those who are ill or caring for someone who is ill. Since most masks are not re-usable and need to be shared regularly, you may find you'll go through quite a few.

Should I be bulk buying P2, N95 or any other type of mask?

Not unless you need a large quantity of masks.

The Australian Department of Health still states that the general public won't benefit from wearing a mask. Unless you're caring for someone who is sick or are sick yourself, you should save the limited supply for those who are in need.

What's the difference between a P2, FFP2, KN95 and N95 face mask?

Depending on your location, different face mask types are more widely used. For example, in the United States and Canada, N95 are common; in Australia and New Zealand you'll see P2 masks more often; in China, KN95 is the standard. Mask manufacturer 3M, which specialises in filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) masks, offers the following explanation of the main differences between each mask type.
