Reducing transmission of SARS-CoV-2

Hi, Jerome,
A summary on airborne transmission through droplets and aerosols and effectivity of masks to control such:

A very interesting paper. Thanks.

It is interesting that, although the body of the paper seems to speak only of the role of masks in minimizing the launching of virus-bearing particles by an infected person (there being no reference to the effect of masks on the "intake" of encountered particles by a potential recipient), the referenced figure clearly suggests that the exposure by recipients is mitigated by a mask.

Best regards,
