Considering those masks don't do squat it's pretty comical.
I guess ignorance is bliss....

It's not that the masks don't do ANYTHING - it's that they don't do EVERYTHING. They do serve a purpose. What they don't do is prevent someone from picking up the virus with their hands, not washing their hands, and then touching their face/mouth with their hands...

Right but eventually that mask has to come off... (unless you want to sleep with it, shower with it, have sex with it, Chat Icon ) and if you haven't washed your hands you will still spread the virus.
Bottom line- wash your hands!

I think some people think wearing those masks will prevent them from breathing in airborne germs- and that is NOT true...

I was just going to say this. The masks are effective if the sick people wear them BUT if you wear one and think the germs can't get in you are wrong -- they can.

I find that really sad actually. This whole thing is getting out of control and instead of taking the time to educate themselves, people panic. I can't wait for the media to find something else to cover.

Have you seen some of the people that ask for lotto tickets or try to return something that's nearly radioactively rotten? Chat Icon

tens of thousands die from the regular flu every year people. One or two people died in NY from it so far. And a Pandemic just mean the WHO has begun tracking it and it now can be located in several countires at the same time. Relax!!!
