By covering the mouth and nose less droplets could be spread. This can reduce the risk of infecting another person through coughing, sneezing or talking. On the other hand, there is insufficient evidence that covering your mouth and nose protects you from being infected by others (self-protection). It is suspected that mouth-to-nose coverings can also reduce the risk of infecting others because they can reduce the speed of the droplets caused by coughing, sneezing, or speaking. Such a protective effect has not yet been scientifically proven. (RKI)
Not everyone infected with SARS-CoV-2 will notice this too. As a rule, those affected are already contagious with very slight symptoms. Some infected people do not get sick at all, but could still eliminate the pathogen. In these cases, wearing a nose and throat covering as a precaution could help reduce the risk of transmission.
