As if one needed another reason to wear a mask

Here is from w w w lung -dot- org:

"Sprays can be a little difficult to track, but some enterprising scientists have managed to make a rough estimate. A cough can travel as fast as 50 mph and expel almost 3,000 droplets in just one go. Sneezes win though—they can travel up to 100 mph and create upwards of 100,000 droplets."

They also travel, according to one demo I saw, but oddly with a machine, not a human, which I found odd, 10-12 feet with diminishing potency, not the six we're told to distance, indoors.  Outdoors, the air and such makes it go downward faster.

Yep, whenever I go out again, for sure, wearing my mask. :)
