This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

A facemask does fuck all to stop coronavirus. Pretty good for keeping all the dust and dried shit particles out, the flavours of PP.
Better than nothing though, and helps the wearer from keep touching the nose and mouth.
" — If worn properly, the N95 respirator is designed to keep out airborne particles far smaller than the flu. It's been tested and shown to have 95 percent efficiency at blocking particles 0.3 microns and greater in size, says Kristin Cummings, of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Flu particles are transmitted primarily by virus-laden large droplets — particles ranging from 2 to 10 microns in diameter, according to the CDC. "
Depends on the purpose of the mask. most surgical masks are to prevent the doctor from breathing germs on the patient, while offerring minimal interference to breathing so you basically need to turn it inside out

Masks don't prevent you from catching a virus, it's true. It's not just an Asian urban legend though. The real point of face masks is to prevent other people from contracting something from YOU. Being considerate.
I can’t help but picture all the thousands of chinese people I’ve witnessed spitting in public over the past 2 years. And the uncovered coughing and sneezing all over each other, especially in crowded places. This virus is going to have an easy time spreading, as we’re currently witnessing.
