Reading their article - cardboard box, video with an iPhone, etc. - I hope they didn't get a huge grant to do this - and ditto for getting a new one.

Ultimately, the conclusions from this group are if you block something it won't travel as far as if you don't block it.

SCARF SECTION:

Actually something worth considering:
Suppose you worry about coughs (significant from what I hear).
You consider coughs with no mask and with a mask. Now, the no-mask is basically obvious BUT what about the results of the with-mask . . . not in front of the mask, but to the sides . . . blowing sideways and even backwards into the surroundings. Or so one could hypothesized - based upon the type of mask and how well worn.

Interestingly, it may be that wrapping a scarf around your lower face would be more effective as it's far more omni-directional in its coverage. Several layers would obstruct droplet propagation and yet maintain decent air flow (breathing, pressure-surge venting).
