Wearing A Mask Could Save 130,000 US Lives

America's coronavirus deaths could surpass 511,000 by the end of February.

According to Business Insider, the staggering number comes from a new University of Washington model.

The model also found that nearly 130,000 of those lives could be saved if 95% of Americans wore masks.

The problem officials found is that only 60% of Americans say they always wear a mask in public.

Researchers found that mask-wearing could also delay the need for lockdowns.
