WASHINGTON – The Food and Drug Administration is authorizing the use of a decontamination system for N-95 Respirators.

Those are devices healthcare workers can use to protect themselves against the novel Coronavirus.

The FDA says more than 6,000 hospitals already have the decontamination system produced by advanced sterilization products. In total, they could clean about 4 million respirators per day.

This is the third such emergency authorization from the FDA this year.
