Dear MEL Topic Readers,

See how a mask affects how a cough travels

Why is setting social distancing guidelines matter? Why should facial masks be required or recommended to prevent from spreading the novel virus?

Researchers at Florida Atlantic University carried out an experiment that shows how far droplets from a cough travel and stay in the air. Surprisingly, the artificially caused droplets hit 3 feet (90 cm) almost immediately, traveled 6 feet (1.8m), the recommended social distance guidelines, in 5 seconds, and reached 9 feet (2.7m) in 10 seconds. Also, in another 30 seconds, the droplets reached 12 feet (3.6 m) even though they became much less dense. Indeed, droplets not only travel farther but also remain in the air longer than you can imagine.

When facial masks become a social attire, will we see designer’s brands or virus-proof masks?

Enjoy watching the video and learn why face masks are now recommended or required.
