  • Makrite N95 face mask

According to NBC, studies have shown that multilayer cloth masks can block up to 70 percent of droplets that could spread coronavirus.

White House advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci says it's likely wearing two masks during the pandemic offers more protection than just wearing one.

So if you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective.

There is no question among scientists that wearing one mask is better than not having any mask at all at combating the coronavirus. "And, often, there are unintended consequences-people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face". These variants were originally identified n the United Kingdom and the South Africa. "That is the motivation behind why you see individuals either twofold masking or doing a rendition of a N-95".

The type of mask you double up on will affect the level of protection it provides.

The World Health Organization has recommended that masks have at least three layers, but has also recommended that surgical masks and N95 respirators be reserved for health care workers.

The three layers each serve an individual objective: the outside layer protects against splashes and droplets, the middle layer filters, and the bottom layer absorbs things like saliva and sweat. But what about two masks?

Double layering doesn't mean you should let your guard down. The CDC said that face masks were recommended "in public settings when around people outside their household, especially when social distancing measures are hard to maintain".
