“Experts” Now Say Americans Should Wear THREE Masks

After Dr. Fauci asserted that wearing two face coverings instead of one would be “more effective” in stopping the virus, CNBC’s Contessa Brewer went even further.

“The experts keep telling us that wearing masks is really about protecting others from ourselves in the event that we are contagious, but you know if other people aren’t wearing their masks or they’re wearing them improperly, we need to protect ourselves,” she said as she began to put a mask on.

“So experts say you can double up with a tight weave fabric mask for added protection,” said Brewer while placing a second mask over her face.

She then cited Virginia Tech researchers who found that doubling up on masks can increase efficacy by 50-75% before announcing, “A three layer mask could block up to 90% of the particles.”

  1. I personally think that four masks will get atleast 99.9% efficacy.
    But, just to make sure, I think it would be prudent if everyones jumps off the bridge and then we can be 100% sure that not only will they not transfer the virus, but they will not get it either.

  2. There is an old paper which studied use of multiple masks in a hospital setting. It was not done in a pandemic with a respiratory virus going around. Anyway, it found that two surgical masks protect better than one; three protect just barely better than two; more than three (it was tested up to 6) give no added improvements.

    Please, if you don’t have a beard, get a well-fitted N95 or N99 for industrial use and a pair of lab glasses (or face shield, if you prefer). You may want to wear a surgical mask on top of the N95, to extend life of the more expensive N95 and to protect against liquids – there exist fluid-resistant N95 for surgical use, but they are reserved to medical personnel at this time.

    If you have a beard please get yourself a PAPR with particulate filter, that should be N95 or above. P95/99/100 and R95/99/100 are also suitable.

    This is inconvenient, but much less inconvenient than getting sick. It’s expensive, but much less expensive than getting sick. It is also ridiculous-looking, but so is intensive care. It will protect you directly, it will protect others directly (if you have chosen a valved masks, you should use a surgical mask on top of it) and it will also protect indirectly everyone, because if you don’t get the virus, you will not spread it and you will not be a strain on medical resources either.

    This has nothing to do with politics. The virus does not care who you vote for, and I am sorry to say, the politicians you vote for, likely don’t either.

    As for Matzav’s policy of making fun of those who take seriously the disease, it would be amusing if it were not for the long list of tragedies this very website publicizes very day.

    • “This is inconvenient, but much less inconvenient than getting sick.”
      Uh, I’m not so sure. If my options are between wearing these silly masks for 11 months, or feeling the effects of a flu for a couple days, I think the latter is way more convenient.

      (I’m only speaking for my demographic, and also not considering the care one should take so that it doesn’t spread to those in a more sensitive demographic.)

  3. Or you could ‘protect yoursef’ by getting vaccinated, but that doesn’t have the same blatant, in-your-face virtue signaling effect.

  4. A surgical mask is triple-layered and sometimes quadruple-layered. They should fit as tight as possible, by shortening the loops and by folding the flexible nose-bridge.
    N95 or KN95 are much better options and are now affordable and widely available. Make sure you wear them correctly and that no air flows through the sides.

  5. I think perhaps wearing 4 or 5 masks will prevent 100% of the particles from spreading…(all breathing will stop)
    Even 1 mask causes me difficulty breathing! Is it just me?

  6. Better idea. Stay locked up in your Mommy’s basement with a Pamper over your stupid face. Keep digesting every doom and gloom prediction until you drop from panic and stress.
