2/ Dr. Phillips, what about masks?

Wear them if you go out with "even a mild cough." (But in that case staying home is smarter!)

But will masks protect me? "Masks offer minimal protection to the individual. Surgical masks (the "blue ones") are not designed to filter the air..."
3/ Tell me more about masks!

"Even the special N-95 filter masks, designed to be true virus protection and now in short supply, are effective only if properly fitted and worn over clean-shaven faces."

Oh, okay. What about broad lockdowns?
4/ "It's time to stop focusing on containment..."

"It is imperative that we fund research to determine how long the infected are contagious and when people can safely return to work so that we can keep... our economy from suffering."

"One thing is certain: panic helps nobody."
