ATLANTA – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new research today, february 9, that determined double-masking reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The research found that wearing a cloth mask over a medical mask significantly increases protection from the coronavirus.

Transmission of the virus can be reduced by up to 96.5 percent if both an infected individual and an uninfected individual wear tightly fitted surgical masks or a cloth-and-surgical-mask combination.

Researchers also found that tying knots on the ear loops of medical masks where they attach to the mask substantially improves protection, by pulling the mask closer to the face.
