A while back I read the prevalence of masks on asia ladies was so men would not bother them out in public or on the bus.

This is what I'm saying!

A mask may help with face touching. But a person also needs glasses/goggles to avoid touching their eyes.

I haven't seen any reputable sources that say a non-95 mask will prevent coronavirus spread and protect health care workers or others from mist. In fact, everything I've seen says the opposite - only the N95 does (if properly fitted/worn).

So surgical masks are useless? Source please?
