The authors are still spinning the value of the n-95 masks, but, bottom line.. They are verfiying what was already known and long, historically established the cloth and surgical masks are NOT effective.
An alarming new study by the University of Waterloo in Canada has found that cloth and surgical masks are only 10% effective in protecting the wearer from aerosols dispersed by COVID-19 infected people, Daily Mail reported on Saturday.
The new study found that common masks are not as effective, primarily due to problems with their fit. Resultantly, they are only able to filter out 10% of exhaled aerosol droplets. The remaining droplets escape out the top of the mask where it fits over the nose, and into the air, unfiltered.
Choosing to opt for plain language the masks DON’T work to protect you as you inhale.
Nor do they protect others as you exhale
University of Waterloo made a handy little video- Looking at the surgical mask visualization it looks to me as if the mask is allowing/guiding droplets in a multi directional fashion (compared to a naked nose)
Check it out. Tell me what you think? And please share this info!
100 percent of mask wearers have been wearing cloth and surgical masks, falsely believing they actually work. All this time wearers have had a false sense of security. Bolstered by the media and political classes. Many of us already knew this. Others wanted to continue slurping up that kool aid.
slurp, slurp, slurp…
