Our favorite scientist, Bill Nye the Science Guy, took to Tik Tok to explain why exactly masks are effective and how they can protect us in this trying time of a global pandemic. In the video, he demonstrates different kinds of face masks and how effective they are at keeping particles in the mask and away from others. He shows the importance of these masks and how they can possibly save lives and keep people safe from contracting the virus.
“Why do people in the scientific community want you to wear a face mask when you’re out in public?” he asks. “Face masks–like this one–prevent particles from my respiratory system from getting into the air and getting into your respiratory system,” he explains.
Watch the Tik Toks below to better understand his point.
So what did we learn today? Wear a face mask or endanger our beloved Bill Nye. And we don’t want to endanger him ever. We love you, Bill Nye. Big fans.
