Masks won't guarantee protection no, but will afford some protection, especially military grade respirators or level FFP3 / N99 type masks will go
some way to helping.
Tight fitting goggles, and disposable latex gloves are helpful too.
Viruses will enter through your eyes, nose, ears, mouth and even through other bodily orifices.
The best protection, unless 'a virus' is deliberately being spread from an aircraft in aerosol form or some other mass dispersal mechanism, is
Either isolate indoors, don't open the door, tape up your letterbox as the postman may be delivering a letter or parcel covered in the virus.
Or if people start dying, go on that remote and isolated camping trip for about 6 months that you've always wanted to do!
I don't want them to 'bring it on mate'...and my 6 and 3 year old kids certainly don't!
