MultiMaskers — Benefits of Wearing 2+ Masks

For maximal protection (Gandhi & Marr, 2020)

By, Multimasking can protect individuals from COVID19 acquisition by further reducing inhalation of viral particles by the mask wearer. Moreover,

“multiple layers of fabric have been found to substantially increase the filtration efficiency of mask materials (Drewnick et al., 2020; Zangmeister et al., 2020), with the first layer reducing the velocity of the droplets and increasing the ability of the second layer to filter the droplets” (Aydin et al., 2020)

if someone becomes infected while wearing a mask, they are more likely to have a milder or asymptomatic infection than someone who becomes infected while not wearing a mask (Gandhi & Marr, 2020)

1 →The smallest droplets can remain suspended in the air for hours after the infected individual has left the area, potentially infecting unsuspecting individuals who come into contact with them

2 → They can penetrate deep into the airways of individuals who breathe them in, which increases the likelihood of infection even for low pathogen loads.
