THE RESEARCH BEHIND HOMEMADE MASKS
Updated: Mar 25, 2020
We will have a full research page dedicated to the evidence that is out there, so check our Research page for more details but here is a quick snap shot.
This graph shows you the relative effectiveness of the homemade mask compared to surgical masks. While none are as effective as the surgical mask, they seem to be better than nothing. What I have found out in the last couple of days is that many hospitals are not letting staff use them. However, as the crises worsens and demand outpaces supply some of these hospitals may change their policies. Please check back regularly for details as we will be updating the site as we get new information.
