Asians just feel unsafe if not wearing mask when they are out in the public area, in the supermarket, etc. There are many silent spreaders (those who have the virus but show no symptoms) out there... I would not risk myself getting infected!

They work even better to hold in virus that is why everyone even if asymptomatic needs to wear. That is why Japan and South Korea are doing the best. Even the leader go on TV with masks. Even during the Spanish flu they knew enought to wear masks. https://static01.nyt.com/images/2020/03/07/lens/07-influenza-02/07-influenza-02-mediumSquareAt3X.jpg Everyone Wear masks. https://youtu.be/2w9M6K9vSUM https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/03/would-everyone-wearing-face-masks-help-us-slow-pandemic#

That's right u mask in public because u must assume u are an asymptomatic carrier... No the simple masks don't protect u directly from covid... It's about reducing ur droplet contributions in public spaces
