  • Asa an Asian, what’s funny to me is that some Americans needs videos like this to convince them to wear a mask lol

  • Most ridiculous comparison. Just compare then DIAMETER of the biggest COVID-19 viruses with the DIAMETER of the smallest openings on the most secure mask and… you'll - hopefully [*] - understand the stupidity of wearing a mask. [*] I'm not responsable for your lack of awareness and inability to acknowledge to the truth.

  • Any chance you can do another video comparing various mask types? Like single, double, triply ply cloth, with/without filter liners, and (I'm genuinely curious about this last one) those goofy neoprene masks I see in Facebook ads all the time, with shoddy one way valves? Either way, appreciate the video mate.

  • Thank you! Viral load (inoculum) determines whether you will get sick and how severe it will be. Masks will decrease the viral load of the wearer and give you a much better chance of being asymptomatic or only having a mild case of Covid if you do get it.

    • Southern_Biscuits it is scientifically proven that they help block out harmful particles. It isn’t a real debate there is a wealth of unequivocal data supporting masks. Do proper research from proper sources.

    • How many times have you been walking through a grocery store and sniffed someone else's fart? Yep. They may be 6ft from you by now but their stink isn't. A mask isn't necessarily bad, it just really doesnt do any good other than make people feel a sense of security. When I exhale into my mask- it isnt clean air coming from my lungs and the air doesnt stay trapped in my mask. There are small microscopic bacteria's in my breath. Of course anything being sprayed into a mask will be stopped because the particles are larger than the things I exhale from my lungs. I would have thought that was common sense.

  • Hilarious. But wearing masks = ritual initiation. The 'virus' is not real. You can't catch viruses. Get educated and stop being mindless order followers. Face Masks RF and 'Viruses' Agenda 2030 17 Goals Explained Fiction Flu shows all the MEDIA articles and the NEWS that 'they' fear monger you with, but if you look, you'll see the #'s are less than the flu season. But let's shut down the whole globe and kill small businesses just to be safe! This 'plandemic' is a scam, and it is a live exercise, and it expires March 31,2025. (look at page 6) If you enjoy wearing masks, walking on lines, standing on dots, sheltering at home, going broke, supporting tyranny, and allowing the NWO new norm to take place, then keep doing what you are told to do, and make sure you don't research. Just believe the MEDIA. Government is here to help. WAKE UP YA'LL!!!

  • Ok, so he used a parlor trick to prove a point. But we all know that these can virus' can hang in the air for a while. We also know we can become infected through our eyes.

  • Shame the particles are like 10 times larger then the virus and therefore stopped by the mask. Try 1.25 micron droplets and call me back.Those spray droplets are no smaller then 10 microns

    nokmuay1970nokmuay1970Day ago
    • You are not coughing, sneezing or breathing out single viruses but droplets in which they swim. If you have a flu and sneeze into your handkerchief, are there Billions of single viruses or is there just one thick blob of sticky stuff? Is that small enough to gut though a mask? I think not.

      Denis KardaDenis KardaDay ago
    • Yes, fully aware. If someone is symptomatic, coughing and sneezing, spewing droplets, of course they should NOT be in public. Masks are supposedly worn in case someone is asymptomatic an carrier. A mask has scientifically been proven to hold no benefits of reducing the spread. It goes straight through the mask droplets or not. People are not listening to science. Only Randomized Controlled Trials should be trusted. Find me ONE RCT to prove yourself correct. I can give you several that say MASK HOLD NO EFFICACY in reducing the transmission of viruses as tiny as COVID. BRING IT.

    • This comment doesn't even make sense, wear your mask like professionals tell you, they know what they're doing more than you

  • Still not going to wear one most of the time as it’s common sense. Only a very small minority of people cough that close to people. I also have fantastic sneezes which I sneeze open away from everyone and a small percentage of times accidentally into people. Masks are of course very useful in certain places such as care homes hospitals but for things such as shops and theatres etc you are only in for a few short moments. You can’t get rid of germs the only way is to live with them and when you get ill then you try your best to fight it. Just think how many germs are on your hands when opening and closing doors etc. I also believe I already had covid I had a awful cough and temperature within March time for at least 4 or 5 weeks but of course covid was only getting popular then. The world has sadly turned into the mother from the Cramp Twins and we need to stop worrying about germs and start worrying about other things again such as the economy and children’s education. These are just my opinions and was a great informative video

    • @THAT1EPSY I don't seem to recall medics wearing masks at all times while at work. They will wear masks while conducting surgery on an individual or other risky scenarios. Theres also a step by step procedure to putting on the mask. You may also want to look up nurses complaining about a decrease in their health from wearing masks all day... But I'm a conspiracy nut right? Also doesn't help that my nurse frienda tell me this too. I guess they're anti-mask conspiracy theorists as well.

  • I have shared this video with all my friends and family. I think it is the most concise way of proving why a mask is needed and when it would be effective and when it would not be effective. Bravo absolutely even the pyrotechnics makes it fun but it really drives the point home my wife mouth fell open she couldn't believe it and the most shocking points is that when you're right in front of the face if you're wearing when you're right in front of the face if the person is wearing a mask you probably wouldn't get it, especially if you also had a mask on even if they coughed in your face accidentally or sneezed in your face right accidentally you probably would have a good chance of not getting it

  • For anyone still doubting, look up "infectious dose" and "viral load". It's not enough to come in mere contact with the virus. The dose needs to be enough to make you sick. Wearing a mask greatly reduces the quantity of virus in the air around someone who's sick. However, being in the presence of someone who's sick for a long time can be problematic even though they're wearing a mask.

  • Did I miss something? Doesn't this just show that a surgical mask stops a flammable spray? I did not see covid used during the test 🤷‍♂️

    DanDan2 days ago
    • The issue i have with the test is that aerosol spray is 100 microns or more (per internet) covid is about .12 microns. Depending on type of surgical mask, they stop 95-98% of 3 microns and no protection to 98% protection of .1 micron. Covid is about .12 microns, which to me seems pretty close to .1 micron. So, to me, it seems depending on the type of surgical mask there would be little protection to good protection. But, back to an aerosol spray of 100 microns or more, a surgical mask which stops 3 microns should be able to handle stopping 100% of the aerosol spray.

      DanDanDay ago
    • One of the ways covid-19 spreads is via droplets from an infected person. If a mask can stop droplets from a pressurized spray, it should stop covid-19 droplets from an infected person

  • The argument isn't whether mask prevent an infected person from spreading it. It's whether or not it prevents the wearer from getting infected. In your test, the mannequin would rebreathe it's own infected air.

    Roy TrolingerRoy Trolinger2 days ago
    • I know it is hard to understand for an American, but it is not about you, but about the community. If you don't spread it, no one else gets sich, yes you breath your own breath (or a very small Part of it) again, but everybody else is safe. If you were Part of everybody else, would you not be glad that the sick person breaths it again and not you? Or is this also communism?

      QuincySapienQuincySapienDay ago
  • the manufacturers themselves mark on their packaging of their masks that "this mask will not protect you from corona virus or any virus..." and there isn't a single scientific study that shows that masks work...but there are quite a few studies that show they don't!

  • You can not compare liquid from an aerosol can to the COVID virus or any virus for that matter. Anything that comes out of that can is thicker and larger than the spores of a virus. Put that mask on and sniff the gas, tell me if it prevents the smell? We have thousands of pores all over our bodies that is open to the virus. When we wear a mask, our eyes are open to the virus. The experiment is fake news. The mask gives us comfort but it doesnt do anything else.

You wear the stupid masks and go along to get along. That’s what fools do. In the meantime, I’m doing just fine at 63 and enjoy getting as much oxygen as I can. If you are not taking care of yourself, why is it my duty to harm myself in order to reduce the stress load on your immune system. Grow up and take responsibility for your life - the way it should always have been.
