After a week of seeing news video footage and newspaper photos of people with masks on so they don’t catch the “swine flu”, I feel I have to let out a little secret known to those who work in or alongside the medical field.
That mask isn’t going to keep the flu out. It’s meant to keep a sick person from spreading things when they cough or sneeze. If you’re not sick, you can still catch the flu while wearing one of these.
Let the unnecessary pandemonium resume.
