    Best face coverings at preventing droplet spread were N95 masks without valves

    Looking to update your coronavirus face mask? A recent study has identified the most and least effective face coverings, with one face mask in particular claiming the No.1 spot for being the most effective at curbing the spread of COVID-19.


    Researchers at Duke University compared 14 commonly available masks and face coverings to see which was most effective at stopping the spread of respiratory droplets. The best face coverings for preventing droplet spread were N95 masks without valves, they found, while fleece coverings and bandanas were shown to be "counterproductive."

    The main route of coronavirus spread is said to occur from person to person through respiratory droplets containing the virus when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people nearby, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    The chin protector face mask that leaves mouth and nose uncovered doesn't do much. Neither does the moustache protector face mask that leaves the nose uncovered. Both are about as good as the fish net face mask that would let minnows through even if it might snag a perch.
