On and On, South of Heaven
If they offer little protection, why should I save them for healthcare workers?Masks don't do much if anything, especially the cutesy cloth masks everyone's been making. Even N95 masks aren't that much protection, and should in any case be reserved for healthcare providers.
Fact is, from the CDC's own webpage prior to the pandemic, N95 respirators are 95% effective at filtering out airborne particles...
That's more than a "little" effective.
