Masks offer much more protection against coronavirus than many think

SAN FRANCISCO ó Thereís a common refrain that masks donít protect you; they protect other people from your own germs, which is especially important to keep unknowingly infected people from spreading the coronavirus.
But now, thereís mounting evidence that masks also protect you.

If youíre unlucky enough to encounter an infectious person, wearing any kind of face covering will reduce the amount of virus that your body will take in.

As it turns out, thatís pretty important. Breathing in a small amount of virus may lead to no disease or far more mild infection. But inhaling a huge volume of virus particles can result in serious disease or death.
