    Masks don't do anything, the virus can go through without any problem.

    You do know that kind of mask is made exactly for that kind of thing. You're quite wrong in that regard.

    The virus can go through, since it's so small. It does help a little, but it's insignificant in the long run.

    There is some evidence that, when used correctly, face masks can slow the spread of airborne viruses. For example, one study from 2008 found that those who used a mask were 80% less likely to get the flu. (huffpost.com)

    It is basically like a bad case of pneumonia for those with healthy immune systems. Those who have compromised immune systems are the ones this type of pathogen is most concerning to.

    Yes and no. While high-end respirators are definitely effective for healthcare professionals, the general surgical face masks are not. The cheap face masks work better at preventing the spread of the pathogen (from an infected individual) through airborne methods than protecting against it.

    That said, if one is living in at-risk countries, face masks are still a good idea.

    media has indeed exaggerated the news but let's lot forget that virus infection is exponential by nature. Doesn't take much to protect yourself anyway - a mask is really all you need. Enjoying my steak tartare while typing this lol.
    I crave for attention so don't give me any

    goals i rly want people to read so i made a sentence with reverse psychology so that they do:
