What you are saying is that the virus can pass in but not out. Wrong. They are not made of one-way material. Masks are made for different purposes. Some protect against particulates that are big, like sawdust. Others protect against vapors. A few are made with a mesh that is small enough to prevent micro substances, like a virus from passing, and are combined with a valve that ensures air breathe comes through the material, but breath going out is passed through it. The CDC has posted notice of masks that actually are effective.
Viruses do not spread anywhere on their own. Its tiny water droplets, they are travelling in and those get exhaled during talking by example.When these droplets hit a mask, you will certainly breath them in, but these droplets will not fly through a mask into someone elses face.

Pretty sure, no normal civilian will wear a full fledged rubber protection... its only those pointless paper masks, people are talking about.
Most of infected people would recover
