QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"If we had 60% of the population wearing masks that were 60% effective--you could effectively end the epidemic based on some modeling that has been done," says Gottlieb. "People don't wear masks appropriately--not everyone has high quality masks. There is more supply in the market, so people can go out and try to get higher quality masks right now."
