Surgeon General to Public: ‘STOP BUYING MASKS!’
March 2, 2020 4:21PM PST
- U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Marks has a blunt message to citizens aiming to protect themselves from the Coronavirus: “Seriously people – STOP BUYING MASKS!”
- Marks tweeted the plea on Saturday, adding “They are no effective in preventing the general public from catching Coronavirus.”
- Marks wants us to also remember that if we buy every mask we see “health providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk.”
- Have you see anyone sporting a mask in public? Will you take the Surgeon General’s demand seriously? Should the government step in to produce masks for U.S. citizens; if so should the masks be available for free?
