Why Do Masks Not Stop Covid-19?

  • All of the cloth masks and materials had near-zero efficiency at 0.3 µm, a particle size that easily penetrates into the lungs.
    • Another study evaluated 44 masks, respirators, and other materials with similar methods and small aerosols (0.08 and 0.22 µm).
      • N95 FFR filter efficiency was greater than 95%.
      • Medical masks – 55% efficiency
      • General masks – 38% and
      • Handkerchiefs – 2% (one layer) to 13% (four layers) efficiency.
    • Conclusion: Wearing masks will not reduce SARS-CoV-2.
      • N95 masks protect health care workers but are not recommended for source control transmission.
      • Surgical masks are better than cloth but not very efficient at preventing emissions from infected patients.
      • Cloth masks will be ineffective at preventing SARS-CoV-2 transmission, whether worn as source control or as personal protective equipment (PPE).

“Masks may confuse that message and give people a false sense of security. If masks had been the solution in Asia, shouldn’t they have stopped the pandemic before it spread elsewhere?”

*The first randomized controlled trial of cloth masks. https://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/5/4/e006577

  • Penetration of cloth masks by particles was 97% and medical masks 44%, 3M Vflex 9105 N95 (0.1%), 3M 9320 N95 (<0.01%).
    • Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks, and poor filtration may result in an increased risk of infection.
    • The virus may survive on the surface of the face- masks
    • Self-contamination through repeated use and improper doffing is possible. A contaminated cloth mask may transfer pathogens from the mask to the bare hands of the wearer.
    • Cloth masks should not be recommended for health care workers, particularly in high-risk situations, and guidelines need to be updated.

*A study of 4 patients in South Korea

Known patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 wore masks and coughed into a Petrie dish. “Both surgical and cotton masks seem to be ineffective in preventing the dissemination of SARS–CoV-2 from the coughs of patients with COVID-19 to the environment and external mask surface.”

*Singapore Study – Few people used mask correctly

Overall, data were collected from 714 men and women. About half the sample where women and all adult ages where represented. Only 90 participants (12.6%, 95% CI 10.3%-15.3%) passed the visual mask fit test. About three-quarters performed strap placement incorrectly, 61% left a “visible gap between the mask and skin,” and about 60% didn’t tighten the nose-clip.

*A 2011 randomized Australian clinical trial of standard medical/surgical masks

Medical masks offered no protection at all from influenza.
