BILL Nye, science TV guy, explained why it was so important to wear a face mask in public in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a pair of TikTok videos, science educator Nye, 64, performed a simple experiment that illustrates why “members of the scientific community want you to wear a face mask in public.”
The popular science communicator delivers his message where he displays a common surgical mask, a scarf that “won awards at the Washington State Fair for Design and Manufacture” and a homemade facial mask.
“Why do people in the scientific community want you to wear a face mask when you’re in public?” ” he says.
“Well, please consider the following. Face masks like this prevent particles from my respiratory system from entering the air and then into your respiratory system. ”
The 64-year-old managed to blow out a candle with a scarf, then pulled out an N95 surgical mask, which he said was designed to “block particles in the medical environment and when you mow the lawn.”
After demonstrating its effectiveness, he raises his voice to get his message across, because the wearing of masks became a controversial subject in the United States during the coronavirus pandemic.
“The reason we want you to wear a mask is to protect yourself, of course.” But the main reason we want you to wear a mask is to protect ME from YOU and particles from your respiratory system from getting into my respiratory system, ”says Nye.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has repeatedly emphasized the importance of wearing masks in public, which has been mandatory in New York since April, posted Nye’s video to his Twitter account, saying, “Listen Bill Nye. ”
“Everyone is literally a matter of life and death. And when I use the word literally, I mean literally a matter of life and death, ”Nye told his TikTok subscribers.
“So when you’re in public, wear a mask. “
