We’re old enough to remember when it was a bad thing to buy masks because they were meant for health care workers, not the general public, who didn’t need them. We’re almost to Inauguration Day, which is when President-elect Joe Biden will ask all Americans to wear a mask for just 100 days. What we didn’t know is that Biden is apparently wearing two masks now.
As cases of the coronavirus continue to surge, football coaches, the President-elect and even some science-savvy senators have begun to double up on masks — a move that researchers say is increasingly being backed up by data. https://t.co/eikzwSXVJF

Agreed. Total nonsense. You’re not safe unless you’re wearing 6 masks. Why is this even a debate?

I personally prefer 10 masks….that’s obviously better than 2…
— Clusterfuck (@logiccounselor) January 14, 2021
Well, if two's better than one, what if I wear 200!?
— Business Master Crapplefratz (@Crapplefratz) January 13, 2021
So I can take off 5 or 6 of these masks?

I like to wear 10 + full scuba gear ?

A KFC bucket works even better

Yes. And a spaghetti strainer on top.

So…I think they should just start putting plastic bags over their heads. SCIENCE backs that plan up!! They won't ever get covid!

If we all had dive gear..

Know what would work better? A plastic bag. No virus getting in or out of that. I shouldn’t say this, someone is going to try it.

Quick, someone tell them if they completely seal their airways you'll be completely immune from covid.

I've constructed one mask out of 17 normal masks super-glued together but it only has one set of ear straps so its 1 mask. Do I still need a second mask?
— Well Redneck (@WellRedneck) January 13, 2021
Definitely. What are you trying to do? Kill grandma??? ?
— LeRoiEstMort (@Le_Roi_Est_Mort) January 14, 2021
Here's the trick: Biden declares mandatory mask order for his first 100 days. That puts us into MAY, when seasonal illness will taper of as the weather warms. He'll declare the normal ebb of seasonal illness the great success of his mask policy.

Odd that increasingly data is showing masks aren't altering the trajectory of viral spread one bit.
