“Greetings, Bill NYE here with more on masks,” says Nye in a video which was reshared on Twitter by comedian Christopher Titus.


“Here’s a map of the United States. The red ink shows where people are wearing masks. The black ink shows where people are getting sick with the coronavirus,” he explains. “I hope you can see the fewer the masks the more the sick.”

The “Science Guy” continues, “Viruses don’t travel by themselves, they travel through little droplets of spit and snot. Fibres are entangled, so when the droplet gets into the fibres of a mask, it gets trapped. This is not that hard to understand, everybody. That’s why we have rules about wearing a mask.”
