10 x Anti Virus Swine Flu Surgical face masks,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 12 x Anti Virus Swine Flu Surgical Face Masks with earloops (Misc.)
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.

Useful review. This is exactly why I need masks for my next flights. My prob is chest infections after flying which often requires hospital admission. Have been grounded for five years. So, now prepared to take the risk with masks. If it was good enough for Michael Jackson..............
