Masks don’t help – only encourages coughing
Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-04-28
Archbishop George Pall today criticized the use of facemasks people are wearing to stop the spread of swine flu.
"The use of masks only makes it more acceptable for people to cough. Natural human interactions require faces to be unmasked, as God intended, unlike those Moslem women who have their faces covered up so we cannot empathize.
"The best way of stopping transmission of swine flu is simply for people to stop coughing. If you need help, then try prayer."
