Roobaba – “  Masks at the ready.”

Masks have been shown to have negligible effects in preventing transmission and infection.  They simply cannot work against a virus.  How could they?  A typical virus is around 80–100 nm.  Surgical facemasks are not sealed to the face and hence have innumerable gaps through which a virus can easily get through.  They’re about as effective in stopping viruses as a fishing net would be in stopping a swarm of gnats.
