Bill Nye the Science Guy explains complex scientific concepts to kids. Now he’s showing why people should wear masks as the coronavirus pandemic continues to surge.
A knitted scarf allows Nye to blow out the candle. A homemade mask with two layers of cotton and a pipe cleaner conforming the mask to the nose allows the flame to move, but not go out.
Finally, he tries an N-95 mask and the candle is not affected.
Nye calls wearing a mask, “literally a matter of life or death,” CNN reported.
The videos were posted Wednesday after positive cases continued to skyrocket in Arizona, California, Florida and Texas, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
