Yes, viruses are small, but this one is spread through attachment to water droplets in aerosols, which is why masks help to reduce transmission rates.

Outgoing. The water droplets soon evaporate leaving the airborne virus incoming.

 

I think it’s supposed to stop you passing it on.

Yes, that was my point. If none of the others is wearing a mask, wearing one to protect you is no good.

I wear a mask only to reduce transmission from myself- from what my medical friends tell me, only a properly fitted N95 or equivalent will protect me
