Respirator - Lima, Peru - N100, hospital, travel, tuberculosis

On the front lines of tuberculosis, healthcare workers have varying degrees of personal protective equipment. Around the world, N95 respirators (masks) are becoming more common amongst staff, but still not nearly ubiquitous. In a XDR-TB ward at a major hospital in Peru, staff are able to go even further, and now wear these N100 respirators to keep safe when working with highly infectious XDR patients.
