Wear a Mask, Everybody

Like many of you, I was told not to wear a mask at the beginning of the outbreak, so I did not purchase N95’s prophylactically. I’ve been kicking myself for this. But it turns out that if everyone wears even a homemade mask whenever they go outside, the rate of spread seems to be a lot lower. Correlation is not causation, but…it sure does seem correlated.

I was going to write a whole essay on why we need to be wearing masks, but this person did a great twitter thread on it instead, so here you go. Click on the “March 25” link for the whole thing.
