Universal Mask Wearing Could Save Some 130,000 Lives In The U.S., Study Suggests

Midshipmen wearing face masks stand and salute before the Navy Midshipmen play against the Houston Cougars on Saturday in Annapolis, Md. Researchers have tried to estimate how many lives would be saved by universal mask-wearing.

The study is based on some assumptions under different scenarios. It suggests that if 95% of Americans wore masks in public it could drastically reduce the amount of COVID-19 deaths by February.
