Are face masks effective against respiratory viruses?

Face masks have become a common sight in public places during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But are they effective in preventing the spread of respiratory viruses? This discussion aims to explore the effectiveness of different types of antiviral face masks in protecting against respiratory viruses such as COVID-19.

We invite healthcare professionals, researchers, and anyone with knowledge or experience on the topic to share their insights and evidence-based information. We will discuss the different types of masks available such as surgical masks, cloth masks, N95 masks, and others, and their effectiveness in filtering out viral particles. We will also talk about the proper usage, fitting, and care of these masks, and how to choose the best one for your needs.

Additionally, we'll also be discussing the best practices to follow along with the mask usage, such as physical distancing, hand hygiene, and avoiding crowded places to keep yourself and others safe. Together, we can increase our understanding of how to protect ourselves and others from respiratory viruses.
