Still not convinced that a face mask can help in curbing the spread of the coronavirus even after watching the Schlieren imaging on how droplets travel? Well then, perhaps Gavin Free’s of The Slow Mo Guys may be able to help to convince you.
Like, how else to reinforce this basic concept than to show the effect of coughing, sneezing and even mere talking at 40 times slower than normal speed and revealing all the details in all its grossness?
Not going to lie. Since the emergence of this killer virus early this year and knowing how it could be transmitted, I am wary of people speaking. It was a shocking revelation that when when people converse, we are actually ingesting each other fluids. Yikes.
Imagine this has been going on since the beginning of time. Oh mine, oh mine. While the virus is no doubt scary, what really gross me out is the fact that we have been taking in each other’s fluid this whole time.
These days, I make sure to stay a reasonable distance from a person whom I am conversing with, with or without a mask. I also try avoid talking over food. Imagine all those droplets will eventually settle on those food that you and I will be consuming. Ewww.
Anywho, back to the The Slow Mo Guys’ video. Gavin not only capture the “evidence” of how droplets are produced even when speaking at normal volume, he also invited the hottest doctor, Dr. Fauci, in town to comment on his slow-mo recordings.
Long story short, face covering helps, period. IMHO, everyone should wear a mask even when this is all over. Like, there’s no way I going to ingest anyone’s fluids ever. Keep going for the said video. Warning: grossness involved so proceed with caution.
