New England Journal Of Medicine Says Wearing A Mask Outside Is Not Needed

FYI, article from New England Journal of Medicine on transmission of Covid-19.

 “We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.“

It is another perspective. – https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp2006372
