I’ve been busy on my machine! 🧵The CDC says homemade cloth masks are good for everyday use. They do a good job of protecting you from nasty droplets when you’re out. The N95 masks are most effective in filtering out air particles, but a protective face covering should do the trick when you need to make a quick run.
On another note, today, I interviewed a phenomenal public health expert who talked about everything from the health chasm to how the Tuskegee experiment ruined medical trust in the African American community. Health disparities, socioeconomic factors and mistrust of government are key factors in explaining why African Americans are suffering from COVID-19 at disproportionate rates. Be safe. Protect yourself.
