    Note: it says 98% bacteria, not viruses.

    My asthma is returning, seems like it went when I started smoking, and is coming back after quitting. I use a valved mask, I can breathe fine with it.

    A valved mask is nowhere near as good at reducing transmission.

    I wear it to protect me, that's all. It won't increase the spread if others wear masks, if they don't wear a mask and they catch it, tough sh!t.

    ah, I understand now. You don't know or care how masks can be used to reduce the spread of infection.

    You obviously DON'T understand, you lackwit.I wear a mask, it protects me, the virus doesn't spread to me. If everyone (I mean 100% of the population) wore the same type of mask as me, it would reduce the spread. It's people NOT wearing masks that helps spread the virus. Which camp are you in regarding masks, wearer or non wearer?. (I won't hold my breath for the answer)

    Lackwit. Does wearing a mask help to protect a person wearing it from the virus, yes or no?

    At first it did not - just to stop you infecting others - then they discovered it partly protected you as well.

    That's the trouble with new inventions - no one had tested them before.


    I have this afternoon discovered that these

    are useless when using car spray paint (from can).


    Whether that shows anything for viruses I don't know.
