Coronavirus Update: Researchers say wearing masks could save over 100,000 lives through February

Researchers at the University of Washington “find that achieving universal mask use (95% mask use in public) could be sufficient to ameliorate the worst effects of epidemic resurgences in many states,”according to a paper published in Nature.

Universal mask use could save 129,574 (85,284–170,867) lives from Sept. 22 through the end of February 2021, the researchers said.

Assuming just 85% of people wear masks, 95,814 (60,731–133,077) lives could be saved, the researchers said.
