    Perhaps he is ill and doesn't want to infect anyone else. They do this in Japan, it's an excellent idea.

    Apart from looking ridiculous those are totally ineffective against the flu virus.

    My username has nothing to do with my religious beliefs.....

    I was informed today that swine flu is actually far milder than normal flu by someone who is in the know.

    They would stop large particles of saliva being coughed out, which is better than nothing. I think fear of ridicule in this case is sad as they're a great idea.

    Once they get wet they just act as a big germ store and need to be disposed of. And unless they are a certain type, they are ineffecitive at preventing the virus passing through.  If you touch them you've got whatever was on them on your hands.
