English to Chinese: How does mask work? General field: Science Detailed field: Environment & Ecology
Source text - English A century later, the advent of modern molecular techniques confirmed that surgical masks can indeed provide good protection against flu. In a 2013 study, researchers counted the number of virus particles in the air around patients with flu. They found that surgical masks decreased the exhalation of large viral droplets 25-fold. The masks were, however, less effective against the fine viral droplets that can remain suspended in the air longer and are therefore more infectious, cutting them by 2.8 times.
Surgical masks also afford fairly good protection for the worried well. In an oft-cited study of 446 nurses, researchers found surgical masks were as good, or nearly as good, at protecting the wearer against flu as respirators, a somewhat more high-tech, masklike device used in hospitals.

Source text - English It was a true story.
There was a girl from a well-to-do family in a village. She was pretty, and many a matchmaker was sent to seek matrimonial relations, but none of the attempts were fruitful. That year she was only fifteen or sixteen. One spring night, she was standing at the back door, her hand resting on a peach tree. She could remember she was wearing a pale blue blouse. The young man in the opposite house met her before, but they didn’t greet each other. He was coming toward her, then paused at a distance and said in a soft voice, “Oh, you are also here.” She didn’t say anything, and he didn’t say anything more either. Standing for a while, they walked away from each other.
That was how the story ended.
Afterwards the girl was abducted by her relative and sold far away to a man as his concubine. She was resold several times and went through untold appalling hazards. When she was old she could still remember, and kept talking about, that spring night when she stood under the peach tree at the back door, meeting the young man.
When you meet, among thousands of people, the very person you’re meant to meet and when you chance upon him/her at the very moment, neither too early nor too late, in the endless flow of solitary existence, you can say nothing except murmuring a greeting , “Oh, you are also here.”
