Study shows massively reduced risk of infection with a mask

Wearing a mouth and nose protector or an FFP2 mask massively reduces the risk of infection with respiratory diseases such as Covid-19. This is shown by the study by an international research team with Austrian participation, which has developed a new theoretical model for estimating the risk of virus spread. As they report in the Royal Society journal Interface, face masks offer excellent protection.

Droplets widespread up to seven meters

In the study, the scientists showed that a person speaking without a face mask can spread droplets - and thus, viruses, if infected - one meter away. When that person coughs, the droplets can fly up to ten feet, and when they sneeze, even seven feet. With a face mask, however, the risk of infection decreases significantly.

"If you wear a surgical mask (mouth and nose protection, NB) or an FFP2 mask, the risk of infection is reduced to the point where it is practically negligible - even if you are only a meter away from an infected person," explained study co-author Gaetano Sardina from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg (Sweden). Masks, if worn correctly, would offer excellent protection and significantly reduce the risk of infection.
