Masks Work. Apparently.

If there’s one thing science is good at, it’s science. And the science says that even if you feel healthy, even if you feel silly for walking around with a mask on when you feel fine, if – if – you start showing signs a few days later, you’ll know that at a time when you could already have been infecting people around you – well, you weren’t. Instead of becoming the centre of your own personal outbreak, you just saved up to several hundred people from becoming infected.

So yeah – the mask on your face may not do much for you – but the masks on other people, they directly make you safer. And the mask on your face, making everyone feel like masks are a good thing, that makes everyone around you safe.
