Now that a lot of counties are now requiring people to wear masks, the debate of whether to wear a mask continues as more states are seeing a surge in Coronavirus infections. Researcher Rich Davis in a new experiment show how important it is to wear a mask. Davis tweeted that he had sung, sneezed, talked, and coughed into a petri dish with, and without a mask, he shared a picture and it was downright scary.
As you can see, Davis set up several Petri dishes that showed the number of bacteria spread with and without a mask when a sneeze, conversation, singing a song, or cough happened. He then repeated the experiment at a distance.
The number of bacteria represented in the Petri dishes with no mask was enormous compared to the dishes with a mask, which shows why the need for a mask is necessary.
