RE: Thailand Tourism Minister puts foot in mouth about Coronavirus
You know the thing that is confusing me about all of this is that so many people are running around wearing surgical masks like they are somehow going to prevent them from getting a virus.
Those masks are designed to protect the user against large slashes of blood and fluids, such that you'd be exposed to while operating on a patient... They do nothing to help against airborne pathogens.
I guess it gives people a false sense of security, but the downside is that they are saying there might be a shortage of masks at some point for actual surgeons. I hope that is an exaggeration, but who knows!
