Protective facemasks can guard against respiratory infections such as flu, and could play an important part in defending against a pandemic, according
Persuading people to wear a mask and to fit it properly, however, is a difficult task that could limit their effectiveness, British and Australian
scientists have found. In a clinical trial of the effectiveness of masks, researchers at Imperial College London and the University of New South Wales
studied 280 adults from 143 families living in Sydney during the winter flu seasons of 2006 and 2007.
Would you be willing to wear a facemask in order to not get the flu? I would, heck i'll wear one without even needing an excuse lol
