  • Because each day's coronavirus update for the US is still so dire, some people have started following an arguably extreme protective measure to keep themselves safe from COVID-19.
  • Face masks are a key part of controlling the spread of the coronavirus.
  • However, some people have gone to the extreme of wearing two face masks, instead of one, to increase their level of protection.

The latest depressing coronavirus update for the US -- which is seeing a seven-day average of 247,600 new daily COVID cases and at least 3,340 daily coronavirus-related deaths, per a CNBC analysis of Johns Hopkins University data -- has some people embracing an aggressive new protective measure: Wearing two coronavirus face masks, instead of just one.

The double-wrappers, who include everyone from President-elect Joe Biden to New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, are reasoning that this move simply doubles their protection against the coronavirus, for which face masks have been an important part of controlling somewhat. We say "somewhat," because no one would be so foolish as to say our pandemic response has reflected a sense of getting things under control. But face masks are one of the only tools to exert what little control we do have.
