Public awareness of Coronavirus
The coronavirus, like influenza and other viruses, spreads through the diffusion of millions of tiny viral particles. After someone coughs, sneezes, or touches an object, these particles can settle on a surface or hang briefly in the air, primarily in droplets. Viral particles, as many as tens of thousand per droplet, can gain access through our nose, mouth, or eyes after we touch our face or breathe while in close contact with someone who is contagious. If the dose is high enough—and a single droplet may do it—the virus can replicate in our body, starting the infection cycle again.
Almost every version of manufactured masks, from every day surgical masks to N95 respirators appear to confer at least some level of protection against this transmission. Study after study has confirmed that in hospitals.
Watch the latest video from Japanese news channel showing the thorough study done and understand how South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and Singapore are able to control the spread while not shutting down the economy.
