AH1N1 (Swine Flu) Face Mask DesignsCategory: Humor
With the recent AH1N1 (swine flu) outbreak, people especially in Mexico City are wearing surgical face masks when they’re in the public. But can they prevent a person from being infected with the disease?
Yes. You see, an influenza virus can be transmitted via water droplets. So when a person near you coughs or sneezes, the face mask prevents the virus from entering your system through your mouth or nose. However, when that same person touches a door knob or a coin that you might also touch, there’s a risk of catching the virus. So, it is a must to always wash your hands. It is also advisable to change your face mask every now and then.
Some people have actually made a fashion statement out of their face masks. Check out these AH1N1 (swine flu) face mask designs below. It reminded me of the SARS outbreak in 2003.
