Scientists Are Now Claiming Residents Should Wear Masks With Three Layers

Susan Hopkins, a specialist in infectious diseases at Public Health England, said people should wear masks made with at least two, or even three, layers.

“What we recommend is at least two layers and ideally three layers in a mask. That is really important to reduce the virus transmission both from you to others and others to you,” Hopkins said.

“We are in an ongoing discussion about what to do next. But we think one mask that has more than two layers in it is currently effective for the vast majority of the population.

“Why isn’t there more pushback on this?”

“And what about the confusion of face-to-face teaching in masks — you can’t assess children’s progress without seeing and engaging with their faces…”

“Children in primary school should not be asked to wear face coverings when they return next week.”
