Yesterday thousands of Americans died of Covid-19, including a Republican Congressman-elect. Most of those deaths could be prevented if more of us wore masks more routinely. And that's exactly what Bill Nye The Science Guy wants everybody to do, jumping on TikTok to deliver a detailed explanation of the science behind mask-wearing -- and, of course, making us laugh despite the gravity of the topic.
