I'm I Still Ill? Dr. Michael Aaronson Recommends Preventing the Spread of Covid-19 by Wearing a Mask in Public Places

The risk of transmission of Covid-19 from one person to another: the novel coronavirus is rarely transmitted from person to person when all parties wear a mask. This very low risk of transmission includes the case where a person who has Covid-19 is close to someone who does not have it.

Ask me why (sans mask), and I'll die. Ask me why, and I'll die. And if you must.... Go to work, tomorrow. [Just please remember to wear a mask.]

Historians note: A recent study found that people are most contagious two days before they have symptoms. Another study indicated that if at least 80% of the population wore a mask, we could reduce the spread of COVID-19 by over 90%.

Dr. Aaronson suggests wearing a mask whilst in public to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the novel coronavirus.
