LG, makers of flat screen televisions and other electronics, has developed a high tech mask that moves air in and out more efficiently than a cloth mask.

The death toll for the coronavirus is well below 1% in the United States. Despite this, millions of Americans are required to wear face masks or face coverings.

For many Americans, face masks are not an option due to health, personal and political reasons. In lieu of wearing masks, they wash their hands and avoid touching their faces.

The battery-operated LG PuriCare mask debuted at a consumer electronics trade show in Berlin last week. The air purifier mask has built-in fans and replaceable H13 HEPA filters.

A respiratory sensor detects how much air the wearer inhales and exhales and adjusts the fans accordingly.

The air purifier mask is large and bulky and the air intake fans may be annoying for autists who are noise intolerant.

LG Electronics doesn't make any claims that the mask will block the virus 100%. The Covid-19 viral particles are extremely tiny and can easily pass through disposable face masks and ventilator masks.

The air purifier mask simply makes breathing easier for those who feel safer wearing a mask but have difficulty breathing through disposable masks.

The LG PuriCare masks are not available to consumers yet. LG must secure regulatory approval from many governments before the masks go to market.

LG recently donated 2,000 units to a hospital in Seoul, Korea.
