I bought mine at the end of January This coronavirus is coming to America and it hits people over 65 very very hard
In health care that mask is changed multiple times. TB is one reason it’s used, along with special gowns. Do they protect the medical staff, most of the time. But even if you are using mask correctly you change mask multiple times. It is a one and done. Why does medical personnel wear them, cause it’s mandatory.
Does it keep you safe, not all the time. For years most skipped the mask, and still live to tell. You will find medical personal don’t panic about such things.

As a kid I survived WW2 bombing of London, later, IRA bombings of London, mlitary service, Asian flu. Spanish flu, Flu flu, several broken bones, a dodgy parachute, most of the scares on Mr Helpful's post, all the 'Man Colds' nature has thrown at me, plus my Sainted Mothers cooking, yet 80+years later, I am still here!
But I must say that I get a bit paranoid sometimes, that something out there is trying to get me!

Wear gloves if you want to reduce touching your face or eyes. You will notice if you do. Also, scrub like a nurse if you are safety oriented. Scrub and wash hair if it is long or swings in your face. The best thing you can do is stay healthy and strong and minimize transfer of the virus. Fly when you are healthy and stay hydrated. N95 masks need to be properly fitted to be effective and they are ridiculously expensive for a disposable. Let the pros and well trained overexposed folks use them. You can use many other means to stay healthy. Good luck!

My sister-in-law is a nurse in NY. The boxes of masks that came in for them to use were all stolen. People are getting out of control.

If the virus can enter from a mucus membrane, a mask will do you very little good, your eyes are open..... Panic and fear . Children and elderly are always more likely to get viruses. How many die each year from the flu?

Why not look into boosting your immune system. Also, think about staying away from crowds when possible and remember, SICK people go to doctors, walk ins, and hospitals so guess what you could get there?

None of this is new to any one , just a new panic and fear mode. Yes, this is a problem and it could get bad but guess what, next year will be a new issue.

Something to think about, your immune system (mainly kids). Is this what you get when you teach a generation not to touch anything or play in the dirt because you could get sick ? "Don't touch that, you don't know who touched it."

What happened to the Indians long ago?... They got sick and died. From what? What was introduced to them from others.

Something to think about when ordering things online. Do you pop the airbags and bubble wrap in packaging? ....Where did the air in them come from ? LOL!! When you open the box, whom packed it and did they wash their hands? ... LOL !!
Shipping today is fast.... Fear and panic....

I really think if you're going to catch the virus, you'll catch it even if you have the whole Coronavirus suit on, because all you have to do is have one little slip up!

You misunderstood my post.

Default Walmart Masks

This hoax was not perpetrated by any political group. It is the Scalawags' Society that seeks to inspire mask wearing as common place, socially acceptable attire. Then, scalawags and ne'er-do-wells, following a robbery or other crime can easily blend into the crowd.
Sadly we come to realize not everyone wearing a mask will turn-out to be the Lone Ranger.
