It helps, but it's gone political in a lot of ways, and if the left has caused it, then they will have to live with the fact of them politicizing everything, and therefore causing the distrust of anything they aspire to or call for today.I just heard this back from a doctor buddy in CA which includes some shocking statements, I thought I'd copy here:I shouldn't have to say it. If you weren't so gullible, so brainwashed, so afraid to do your own thinking; you'd be able to figure it out for yourself. Look again at the image series in post 925. See how tiny the #CoronaHoax2020 virus is compared to the structure of the mask. What chance is there of any particular virus even bumping into a fiber on its way through, much less being stopped from getting through?
Facemasks, when fitted properly, effectively disrupt the forward momentum of particles expelled from a cough or sneeze, preventing disease transmission. Even if the facemasks are ill-fitting, they are still able to interrupt the particles and airborne viruses sufficiently, such that these pathogens do not reach the breathing zones of people nearby.

Source control is as effective as an inhalation barrier.
