Trump Says N-95 Masks Aren’t Needed: ‘Just Use Scarves’

Donald Trump said during his Tuesday coronavirus press briefing that scarves are just as effective as N-95 masks to protect against COVID-19.

“A lot of people have scarves. A scarf is good,” said Trump. “There’s certainly no harm.”

Obviously, this is not recommended. N-95 masks are specially formulated to filter 95 percent of impurities out of the air. Scarves, if anything, do the exact opposite. Many of them are loosely knit and can hold the virus in the fibers.
