TECMASK FLU MASKS
Lets face it... a lot of people admit to being too embarrassed to wear a germ or flu mask in public. But following the 2017 Flu Season in Australia and the tragic effect it had on the nation, it’s clear that we can’t just rely on the flu vaccine to ensure full protection from the flu.
Here’s the facts:
- Research published in The New England Journal of Medicine shows that the 2017 Flu Season killed over 800 people across Australia and New Zealand, far more than the 2009 Swine Flu pandemic.
- Flu Vaccinations are prepared 6 months in advance of an outbreak to protect us from the strain of flu that is anticipated to hit the nation each flu season. This means that there is no guarantee that the vaccine prepared will protect us from the strain of flu that is passed around. Therefore it would only make sense to compliment the flu shot with a TECMASK
- On 1st June 2018 Dr Chris Del Mar, Professor of Public Health at Bond University encouraged all medical practitioners to start pushing people towards practising simple hygiene methods such as hand washing and mask wearing.
- When you are sick and coughing and sneezing, tiny droplets of saliva and mucus carrying airborne viruses are passed through the air. Recent studies have shown that coughing spreads droplets as far as 6 metres and sneezing as far as 8 metres. Once someone has coughed or sneezed, the droplets stay suspended in the air for up to 10 minutes.
