Medical facemasks

Janet Catesby, Toormina

I refer to your article After the Plague, where you recommend that everyone leaving their house wears a mask.

The NSW government’s current advice is that there is a shortage of protective masks for frontline medical staff. Therefore, the general population trying to source these masks would only add to the shortage until Australia can manufacture its own masks to meet the current medical needs.
