To triple mask or quadruple mask to stop the spread of COVID-19?

I don't trust double masking, that seems bare-bones at most. I'm thinking that in order to totally be free of any responsibility, one needs to at least be triple-masked. However, I'm wondering if 3 masks still aren't enough, or 4 should be worn just in case. Do you think that 3 and a face shield might be the most efficient instead of 4 masks?

    Well you can make your mask 10 times more effective with just one simple Kitchen Ingredient.


    Dr. Steven Quay, the CEO of Atossa Therapeutics Inc. has suggested that by simply spraying a salt solution on the outside of the mask the night before you're going to wear it the next day, letting it dry can itself improve the stopping of the virus up to a thousand-fold.

    Masks are ineffective. We’re being lied to.

    Improve the quality of the mask - to a N95 mask or KN95 (FDA approved version).  This makes filters out at least 95% of viral membranes and up to 99%.

    If you want more protection than that - stand 6ft away because it's super hard to get covid when you are 6ft away.

    and i you want even more protection, wear a cotton mask or face shield.

    In your case, you should wear a plastic bag over your head, tightly duct-taped around your neck. The world will be better off with one less brain-dead troll.

    Do what you gotta do.  Mental health is as important as physical health.

    No, it won't work.  The only way is for everybody to stay home and not leave for another year.
