NYTimes gives an illustrated booklet on how masks work


 Several writers and artists (Or Fleisher, Gabriel Gianordoli, Yulia Parshina-Kottas, Karthik Patamjali, Miles Peyton, and Bedel Saget) explain in detail how different kinds of masks work.

The title is “Masks Work. Really. We’ll Show You How”. 

The staged illustrations show droplets, aerosols, and virus particles, and how they intersect various fabric layers of masks.   There is a curious geometric illustration of the random fiber patterns of the N95.

The N95 seems to be the best mask, and we should have a national effort to make them for everyone. Men would lose their beards.  They have to fit right.
