If you can smell things while wearing a mask, does that mean the mask is not protecting you from viruses like COVID-19? 14N世界播

Okay, so, until last week, I would never have imagined that anyone would seriously ask this question. 14N世界播

好吧,所以,直到上周,我从未想过会有人认真地问这个问题。14N世界播


What happened last week? 14N世界播

上周发生了什么事?14N世界播


Last week I saw an answer on Quora from someone who insisted that mask-wearing was pointless and stupid because “coronavirus is airborne, and I can smell perfume when I wear a mask,” so obviously a mask was useless. 14N世界播

上周,我在Quora上看到一个人的回复,他坚持认为戴口罩是毫无意义和愚蠢的,因为“冠状病毒是通过空气传播的,当我戴口罩时,我能闻到香水味”,所以很明显口罩是没用的。14N世界播


Now this is a person who has scaled Mount Dunning-Kruger and, upon reaching the lofty pinnacle, proudly planted his flag to show all and sundry that he is the master of “unskilled and unaware of it.” 14N世界播

这是一个登上邓宁-克鲁格山的人,当他登上顶峰时,自豪地插上他的旗帜,向所有人表明,他是“不熟练和不知情”的大师。14N世界播


I’m sure he genuinely was proud. He used his brain! He figured it out! Coronavirus is airborne. Perfume is airborne. Masks don’t stop perfume. Therefore, masks don’t stop coronavirus. It’s logic! he saw right through the Democrat hoax! He outsmarted the libs! OWN THE LIBS! OWN THE LIBS! BOOYAH! OWN THE LIBS! 14N世界播

我相信他真的很自豪。他动脑筋了!他想通了!冠状病毒是通过空气传播的。香水是通过空气传播的。口罩挡不住香水味。因此,口罩并不能阻止冠状病毒。这是逻辑!他看穿了民主党人的恶作剧!他比自由党更聪明!拥有自由党!拥有自由党!太棒了!拥有自由党!14N世界播


Thing is, I’m sure if you asked this rather bright fellow, so smug in his self-assured position as King of Mount Dunning-Kruger, how big a virus is, or how big a perfume molecule is, he probably couldn’t tell you. They’re both small, right? And airborne! 14N世界播

问题是,我敢肯定,如果你问这位相当聪明的家伙,他自以为是的邓宁-克鲁格山之王,病毒有多大,或者香水分子有多大,他可能都不会告诉你。他们都很小,对吧?空降!14N世界播


The key to resolving this conundrum is to understand that not everything that travels through the air is the same size. 14N世界播

解决这个难题的关键是要明白,并不是所有在空气中飞行的东西都是一样大小的。14N世界播


Odor molecules are just that… molecules. Many of them are made of only a few atoms. Viruses are millions of times bigger. I don’t mean “millions” as in “way bigger,” I mean literal millions. A viral coat alone on a small virus is more than 4 million atoms. 14N世界播

气味分子就是…。分子。它们中的许多只由几个原子组成。病毒要大几百万倍。我指的不是“大得多”中的“数百万”,而是字面上的数百万。仅在一种小病毒上的病毒外壳就有超过400万个原子。14N世界播

[Edit] A couple of eagle-eyed readers have pointed out in the comments that I have confused units of linear distance and volume. A better comparison is this: 14N世界播
