This study is useless, they couldn't get the mannequins to play with their masks and touch their faces, nor could they get them to sneeze through the mask.

I get the sarcasm... but I can't tell you how many times I have explained to my parents that, yes the virus is small enough to pass through the masks, but it is the sneezes and coughs that are contained which should limit transmission. Now, my father may have early signs of dementia, but my mom doesn't. But they both dismiss the fact that covering a mouth during a cough or sneeze might help.

It's incredible how many people on ATS demonstrate a total lack of understanding when it comes to even the simplest of scientific matters. No, wearing a mask is not harmful to ones own health. My god if you don't want to wear a mask then simply don't and shut up about it. But knock it off with your "increased viral load" garbage.
