Why face masks lower COVID-19 deaths:
Decreasing virus spread by infected individuals. The mask traps virus particles on the inside, preventing the virus particles becoming airborne. Protect others.
Decreasing new infections by uninfected individuals. The mask prevents airborne virus particles being inhaled from the outside. Protect yourself.
Limiting hand to face contact. The mask puts a physical barrier between potentially contaminated hands and passages to one's lungs via mouth or nose (but leaves eyes unprotected).
Micro-dosing with a face mask rather than receiving full dosage without a face mask results in anti-bodies being created. This helps to strengthen the immune system protecting against infection.
[Update] Twitter 3 April 2020. New study just out, face masks effective for source control against influenza and seasonal coronaviruses, even reducing virus detection in aerosols in patients with coronavirus infections. 5 years of hard work to generate the data.

Highlighted by Youtube channel Peak Prosperity minute 31 in their video "turning the corner" they have tested and found that using blue shop towels in homemade face masks can filter particles 2x to 3x better than cotton after testing dozens of fabrics. The ideal material turned out to be stretchy blue shop towels made from a polyester hydro knit. Inserting two of these towels into an ordinary cotton mask brought filtration up to 93% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, the smallest their machine could test. Meanwhile, the cotton masks filtered 60% of particles at best in their tests. Polyester hydro knit towels are readily available at hardware and automotive stores.

The Metropolitan Police Department's Disaster Prevention Section of Tokyo also admits that simple masks have limited performance, saying that "there is a little lack of airtightness, but sand dust can be sufficiently prevented.”
