I don't know why moisture and warmth would harbor viruses particularly well? Fungi and bacteria like warm and humid but both they and warmth and possibly humidity break down viruses. I think virus last longer when it is colder and drier, unless they are on a receptive host and can get to work so to speak. The virus is small enough to pass through most light masks, but the mask can catch small droplets and is probably better than coughing and sneezing on your hand or elbow or whatever. 18.104.22.168 22:19, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
