Yup works with the correct mask.. now try a cloth mask, a bra, pantie's, shirt and all the other dumb stuff CNN tell's us work just as well as a N95 mask.

I guess if I spit while breathing out your right, but if I exhale like a normal human,you're wrong

You...think the water vapor from your exhalations travel...further than you spitting...? Like, you REALLY think that the CO2 you exhale somehow travels further than you hauling back and spitting at full force...? Like, that's a thing that you truly believe...?

Ok, so he used a parlor trick to prove a point. But we all know that these can virus' can hang in the air for a while. We also know we can become infected through our eyes. I wonder if you'd be willing to strap up with your favorite mask and take a shot of pepper spray from 6 feet. Might be more believable.

Thank you uncle Rob! That was surely a lot of fun to watch and the message is very clear. The mask is very effective in short quarter. If you are able to keep your distance then drinking a beer without a mask is surely more enjoyable. I though that your attempt to drink a beer with the mask on was hilarious. Well done.

Shame the particles are like 10 times larger then the virus and therefore stopped by the mask. Try 1.25 micron droplets and call me back.Those spray droplets are no smaller then 10 microns
QuincySapien 7 hours ago
You are not coughing, sneezing or breathing out single viruses but droplets in which they swim. If you have a flu and sneeze into your handkerchief, are there Billions of single viruses or is there just one thick blob of sticky stuff? Is that small enough to gut though a mask? I think not.

Yes, fully aware. If someone is symptomatic, coughing and sneezing, spewing droplets, of course they should NOT be in public. Masks are supposedly worn in case someone is asymptomatic an carrier. A mask has scientifically been proven to hold no benefits of reducing the spread. It goes straight through the mask droplets or not. People are not listening to science. Only Randomized Controlled Trials should be trusted. Find me ONE RCT to prove yourself correct. I can give you several that say MASK HOLD NO EFFICACY in reducing the transmission of viruses as tiny as COVID. BRING IT.

Still not going to wear one most of the time as it’s common sense. Only a very small minority of people cough that close to people. I also have fantastic sneezes which I sneeze open away from everyone and a small percentage of times accidentally into people. Masks are of course very useful in certain places such as care homes hospitals but for things such as shops and theatres etc you are only in for a few short moments. You can’t get rid of germs the only way is to live with them and when you get ill then you try your best to fight it. Just think how many germs are on your hands when opening and closing doors etc. I also believe I already had covid I had a awful cough and temperature within March time for at least 4 or 5 weeks but of course covid was only getting popular then. The world has sadly turned into the mother from the Cramp Twins and we need to stop worrying about germs and start worrying about other things again such as the economy and children’s education. These are just my opinions and was a great informative video

I have shared this video with all my friends and family. I think it is the most concise way of proving why a mask is needed and when it would be effective and when it would not be effective. Bravo absolutely even the pyrotechnics makes it fun but it really drives the point home my wife mouth fell open she couldn't believe it and the most shocking points is that when you're right in front of the face if you're wearing when you're right in front of the face if the person is wearing a mask you probably wouldn't get it, especially if you also had a mask on even if they coughed in your face accidentally or sneezed in your face right accidentally you probably would have a good chance of not getting it

For anyone still doubting, look up "infectious dose" and "viral load". It's not enough to come in mere contact with the virus. The dose needs to be enough to make you sick. Wearing a mask greatly reduces the quantity of virus in the air around someone who's sick. However, being in the presence of someone who's sick for a long time can be problematic even though they're wearing a mask.

Did I miss something? Doesn't this just show that a surgical mask stops a flammable spray? I did not see covid used during the test 🤷‍♂️
Dan 14 hours ago
The issue i have with the test is that aerosol spray is 100 microns or more (per internet) covid is about .12 microns. Depending on type of surgical mask, they stop 95-98% of 3 microns and no protection to 98% protection of .1 micron. Covid is about .12 microns, which to me seems pretty close to .1 micron. So, to me, it seems depending on the type of surgical mask there would be little protection to good protection. But, back to an aerosol spray of 100 microns or more, a surgical mask which stops 3 microns should be able to handle stopping 100% of the aerosol spray.

One of the ways covid-19 spreads is via droplets from an infected person. If a mask can stop droplets from a pressurized spray, it should stop covid-19 droplets from an infected person

The argument isn't whether mask prevent an infected person from spreading it. It's whether or not it prevents the wearer from getting infected. In your test, the mannequin would rebreathe it's own infected air.
QuincySapien 7 hours ago
I know it is hard to understand for an American, but it is not about you, but about the community. If you don't spread it, no one else gets sich, yes you breath your own breath (or a very small Part of it) again, but everybody else is safe. If you were Part of everybody else, would you not be glad that the sick person breaths it again and not you? Or is this also communism?
ar47yrr4p Day ago
the manufacturers themselves mark on their packaging of their masks that "this mask will not protect you from corona virus or any virus..." and there isn't a single scientific study that shows that masks work...but there are quite a few studies that show they don't! So this experiment is completely ludicrous!

You can not compare liquid from an aerosol can to the COVID virus or any virus for that matter. Anything that comes out of that can is thicker and larger than the spores of a virus. Put that mask on and sniff the gas, tell me if it prevents the smell? We have thousands of pores all over our bodies that is open to the virus. When we wear a mask, our eyes are open to the virus. The experiment is fake news. The mask gives us comfort but it doesnt do anything else.

Wow. Where have you been since time began! Such a simple test that proves zero. If you take care of your immune system you don’t have to worry about someone sneezing a foot away from your face. You wear the stupid masks and go along to get along. That’s what fools do. In the meantime, I’m doing just fine at 63 and enjoy getting as much oxygen as I can. If you are not taking care of yourself, why is it my duty to harm myself in order to reduce the stress load on your immune system. Grow up and take responsibility for your life - the way it should always have been.

So the masks "reduce" but don't protect against transmission. THEREFORE, the masks don't work. All it takes is a tiny particle of corona for one to get infected. And not even that, every time you wear a mask, your oxygen levels shoot down. I dare anyone to say the transfer of oxygen would be the same with or without mask-wearing. Please read up on Hypoxia.

@Greg ###### You basically ignored the fact South Korea contained it early after it spread rapidly through a Korean church gathering. Social distance plus masks = very low transmission. If you actually look at South Korea, you will see most of the new infections are 'tourists' caught at customs with the virus, and western expats living in Korea who are not social distancing or wearing masks. How is this hard to comprehend?

@AwesomeLad66 The infection rate is meaningless and inaccurate. The infections are in the millions around the world (Billions ?). The herd immunity will take hold at about 60% of the population.THE VIRUS CANNOT BE STOPPED....IT WILL TRANSMIT EXPONENTIALLY..Vaccines in time are a pipe dream..
AwesomeLad66 Day ago
@Greg ###### Compare South Korea to the Netherlands: Netherlands has 10x the infection rate and 10x more deaths. How have face masks been detrimental to Korea? Korea did not stop business and suffer like the West did, because they put cloth on their face early. It's not a hard task wearing a mask. But I understand some countries want to be the guinea pig regarding herd immunity and long term effects, so it will be interesting to see the results, apart from a much higher death rate as I mentioned. Maybe even compare the West to Taiwan.. why is it that densely populated Asian countries faired better? (hint: mask culture)

@AwesomeLad66 The Dutch disagree: Despite a global stampede of mask-wearing, data show that 80-90 percent of people in Finland and Holland say they “never” wear masks when they go out, a sharp contrast to the 80-90 percent of people in Spain and Italy who say they “always” wear masks when they go out. Dutch public health officials recently explained why they’re not recommending masks. "From a medical point of view, there is no evidence of a medical effect of wearing face masks, so we decided not to impose a national obligation," said Medical Care Minister Tamara van Ark. Others, echoing statements similar to the US Surgeon General from early March, said masks could make individuals sicker and exacerbate the spread of the virus. “Face masks in public places are not necessary, based on all the current evidence,” said Coen Berends, spokesman for the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment. “There is no benefit and there may even be negative impact.” In Sweden, where COVID-19 deaths have slowed to a crawl, public health officials say they see “no point” in requiring individuals to wear masks. “With numbers diminishing very quickly in Sweden, we see no point in wearing a face mask in Sweden, not even on public transport,” said Anders Tegnell, Sweden’s top infectious disease expert.
