The virus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, for most people but can be severe in some cases

Yeah, so does a normal flu.. right?

I lost someone in Bangkok 6 years ago, she had a flu that turned into a pneumonia, she passed away 2 days later at 26 years old, really sad.

Terrible event, horrific memories linger. RIP to those who perished and thoughts with those who managed to survive. Truely hope we never experience anything like this again.

Sadly, it will happen again. If only we could know "when" to save lives :/

Also, opinions are NOT data, so if somebody ask for data to prove what you believe and you cannot provide such data you should re-think your beliefs.

And you, can you provide data? Do you own a mask factory? Seems like you want everybody to wear a mask... when is not needed.

Relax man. It's all good.

Public health officials have been clear about it: There’s no need for healthy people to go around wearing face masks to protect themselves from the novel coronavirus. That hasn’t stopped a run on supplies, which has led to a shortage of face masks for medical personnel coping with the epidemic, who do need them. That news, in turn, has led many people to wonder why a mask that’s vital for protecting a nurse or a doctor wouldn’t help them too. Here’s what’s behind the confusion.

Can wearing a medical face mask protect you against the new coronavirus? It's a question many people are asking, including pet owners who are putting canine face masks on their dogs. 

If it's a regular surgical face mask, the answer is no, Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, told Live Science. 

A more specialized mask, known as an N95 respirator, can protect against the new coronavirus, also called SARS-CoV-2. The respirator is thicker than a surgical mask, but neither Schaffner nor the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) recommend it for public use, at least not at this point.

Claim: ‘Face masks don’t work’

Wearing a face mask is certainly not an iron-clad guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, can penetrate masks. However, masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus, and some studies have estimated a roughly fivefold protection versus no barrier alone (although others have found lower levels of effectiveness).
