Why ALL people in Zihuatanejo should wear masks!!!

From what I have been reading unless your wearing an N95 or KN95 mask, it’s doing little to no good. That’s my opinion for what it is worth which is nothing except to myself.

We've beaten this horse many times already. You are correct that the disposal surgical masks and cloth masks are not particularly effective in protecting you from the virus. However, the surgical masks are fairly effective at protecting you from spreading the virus whereas the cloth masks are marginally effective at protecting others. We don't wear the non-N95/KN95 masks to protect ourselves. As individuals who care about our brethren, we wear them to protect others.

However, now that the N95/KN95 masks are more readily available, the authorities are recommending everyone use them in lieu of the other types.

Any professionals want to chime in?
