The largest COVID-19-specific mask trial to date, the Danish study -see here or Annals of Internal Medicine here – found masks may either reduce your risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection by as much as 46% or increase it by 23%.
Either way, the reason for this is because the virus is aerosolized and spreads through the air. Aerosolized viruses — especially SARS-CoV-2, which is about half the size of influenza viruses — cannot be blocked by a mask, as explained in an interview with Denis Rancourt, who has conducted a thorough review of the published science on masks and viral transmission. A vast majority — 97.9% of those who didn’t wear masks, and 98.2% of those who did — remained infection free.
