Dr. Anthony Fauci, who last March was telling us not to walk around wearing masks, followed the science and changed his mind, declaring that everyone should wear a mask. Now, two weeks after the New York Times reported that “the President-elect and even some science-savvy senators have begun to double up on masks,” Fauci is coming out in favor of double-masking, sort of:
Wearing two masks instead of one is probably more effective to stop the spread of coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci sayshttps://t.co/n9bBTPQuA5

We were surprised when we covered that New York Times story how many people popped up in the comments to say that they’d been wearing two masks all along … maybe a medical mask underneath and a cloth mask on top. And if you want to wear two masks, great. If you sign an executive order mandating everyone on federal property wear a mask for 100 days, even while celebrating, you and your press secretary should probably both wear one too.
Why not just go all the way and wear a full space suit?

Why not 10, 10 would fix it

I wonder if Fauci thinks wearing a plastic bag would be even better

Have you done any research on 3? I can't extrapolate, but it seems like that would be even better yet! Maybe 3X safer than one? This is really good work here. Keep it up.

Face masks don't work, but wear two anyway…

And I bet it's even better than using none as he suggested early on.

If Biden follows the science and mandates two masks on federal property, then will everyone in Washington wear at least one?
