Chris Wallace: "So You're Saying This Mask I've Been Wearing For A Year Isn't Really Protecting Me Very Much?"

|

"FOX News Sunday" host Chris Wallace discovered during an interview with the dean of Brown University's School of Public Health, Dr. Ashish Jha, that standard cloth masks do very little to stop the spread of COVID-19.

"So you're saying this mask I've been wearing for a year isn't really protecting me very much?" Wallace asked.

"You probably need to upgrade your mask, Chris," Jha told him.


CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS: I read a report, actually several reports this week, that cloth masks, which, frankly, are the kinds of masks I usually wear, are not really effective. Is that true?

DR. ASHISH JHA, DEAN, BROWN UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH: Yes, cloth masks, unto themselves, generally not effective. That's why I think surgical masks are better. There are, of course, higher-quality masks. Cloth masks may be ten or 20 percent effective, not great against the delta variant.

WALLACE: So you're saying this mask I've been wearing for a year isn't really protecting me very much?

JHA: I'm saying that given the delta variant that's out there, you probably need to upgrade your mask, Chris.

WALLACE: Well, thank you for that and I think a lot of people thank you.
