Universal adoption of homemade face masks would have huge health and economic benefits in the current global coronavirus pandemic, says a paper published a few days ago by seven Yale professors.

"We estimate that the benefits of each additional cloth mask worn by the public are conservatively in the [US]$3,000-$6,000 range due to their impact in slowing the spread of the virus," concluded the researchers from the Ivy League university's School of Management, Institute for Network Science, Department of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases, and School of Public Health.

"We must both encourage universal mask adoption and deal with the urgent policy priority that front-line healthcare workers face shortages of personal protective equipment, such as N95 respirators and surgical masks," they wrote.
