10 x Anti Virus Swine Flu Surgical face masks
on 11 April 2013
I bought these masks because I caught a nasty dose of the flu while on a 12 hour flight in 2012, and spent most of my holiday bedridden. I decided that breathing other peoples recycled air for 12 hours is a bad idea, so invested in these masks.
Evidence is far from scientific (dont know if its really possible for a paper filter to stop a virus) but I have not caught the flu since. I recently flew for 26 hours in an economy class cabin surrounded by no less than five people coughing repeatedly. I look like a complete idiot - but at the end of the day who gets to enjoy their holiday?
Other reviewers have mentioned these come in a zip lock bag. This is true. I am not concerned about whether the bag is sterile, because I am not actually performing surgery with these masks - and if my doctors procure their medical inventory from Amazon, the sterility of the masks would be the least of my concerns.
