Crystal Cox/Business Insider Two face masks may be better than one if you're doubling up on single-layer cloth masks or combining a double-layered cotton mask with another material like silk, chiffon, or flannel.  Multiple masks may do more harm than good in some cases, though, like if they make it so difficult to breathe you adjust them to let in more air or if they offer a false sense of security.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

As the U.S. continues to battle the coronavirus, a new flu season is about to start. The flu and the coronavirus have a lot in common, especially considering that people older than 65 are most at risk of getting a severe respiratory infection. According to the CDC COVID-19 dashboard, the case-fatality ratio of COVID-19 in the U.S. is estimated to be 3.1%. The case fatality rate for influenza will obviously change from year to year.

WHO: The US and Europe still aren't quarantining correctly, and that's why we're headed for a COVID-19 disaster this winter

Jeffrey Greenberg/Education Images/Universal Images Group via Getty Images Quarantining people who've been exposed to sick patients is one of the most basic ways to end the spread of an infectious disease, like COVID-19. But the WHO says proper quarantining is still not being done "systematically, anywhere" during this pandemic. That's a problem, especially in Europe and the US, where cases and hospitalizations are on the rise again.  Effective quarantining "means not going to work. It me...
