Will Face Masks protect you from the Swine Flu.

The public health of Canada found that flu viruses are mainly transmitted over short distances. They have found that more people are becoming infected by inhaling  viruses than buy touching contaminated  surfaces. The report was made by the council of canadian Academies at Mount Sinai hospital in Toronto. They say that a face mask is the only protection if you are sick . The people say that you should was your hands more often and that you should cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing, Also that if you cough on anything you should get something to clean it off and make sure no one touches or else they will get sick too.More than 100 people have died in mexico because of the Swine Flu.All masks might not work only the ones that dental doctors use when you have a teeth check up but those will not filter all the small particles when you cough because if you stand near dry wall it will get in your nose and it will be really hard to use. The one that will cover all that is the one called N95 respirators witch will cover your nose and mouth so it won’t get in there.                                           THE END BY: FAHIM  http://www.cbc.ca/health/story/2009/04/28/f-flumasks.html
