    Those masks don't readily stop viral infection and other bacteria from entering our bodies. They can still get through the mask a lot of times.

    The masks are largely ineffectual in preventing you from receiving germs although there may be a little benefit in keeping you from spreading germs.

    Why not indeed? Why not also wear them in the shopping mall where all those sniffling kids are dashing about carrying whatever diseases they might have. Or on the subway, where people from all walks of life are breathing on us?

    My point. There is such a thing as overkill. And wearing masks in hospitals that are sanitary to the best of their knowledge is overkill for the minimum risk. But, hey, if you feel like wearing a mask, I doubt anyone will stop you.

    there's really no point in visiting a sick friend or family member wearing a mask. the patients will feel worse. a better idea might be to have hospitals set up to have visitors visit by Skype, unless absolutely necessary.

      How would a doctor or a nurse be able to listen to your heart beat, check  your blood pressure and other vital signs, and weigh you by Skype?  Why would a patient want anyone to visit him in a hospital  by Skype? Who's going to pay the extra costs of having a patient's room set up for Skype?
