Abstract

Can physical distancing, wearing masks, and using eye protection really protect us against SARS-CoV-2 infection? In a study published in early June in The Lancet, an international consortium of scientists found that all of these interventions are effective in reducing the transmission of the virus by several fold, although none offer complete protection.
