Perhaps a good idea suggesting this, I'm not sure. However, it's a pity he didn't say how effective just one mask is.

The idea of two masks is being discussed in the U.S. a lot in the last month.  I haven't seen even one double masker in Thailand. I have to admit and I'm not proud of it that I would be very reticent to double mask here unless it became fairly common. I feel that people would stare and mock.

There are definitely fewer double baggers over here.

I've seen a few double baggers but not double maskers.

The masks MUST be a good fit.
As the flow of air goes through the path of least resistance and that will be round the nose and sides instead of through the filter.

They've shut the whole world down over a 99% survival rate.  Un by God believable.

Now you don't have to worry about it. Now they have seen a "top doctor" suggest it. So they will seem like unintelligent idiots. Double mask up in busy areas.

I've been double masking since October with the added bonus that double the elastic around my ears also covers my nose for quadruple protection 🤔

A leading Thai respiratory doctor has said that wearing TWO masks is fine and does not restrict breathing. 

 

In fact Dr Manoon Leechawengwong of Vichaiyut Hospital in Bangkok said it could stop the spread of Covid in some situations by up to 96%.

 

He said on Facebook that he wondered in the past if wearing two masks was over the top.

 

Now he was convinced due to new evidence that putting a surgical mask and a cloth one together was a good idea and could improve efficacy.
