First it was HR669 that demanded my attention, which we've defeated by the way - congratulations everyone! - and now it's swine flu. For all of you that follow my blog, you know my topics are pretty much focused on ball pythons since this is a ball python website. I'm not one for "fear mongering" nor do I promote fear mongering but I've become very concerned with the recent reports, deaths and the rapid spreading of swine and avian flu. I don't have to tell you what swine flu or avian flu is because you know this already and you know how deadly this strain of flu is and what it can and has done to humans thus far.
This blog is pretty much a Public Service Announcement about the N95 Particle Respirator mask (nano or nanotechnology mask) and how it can protect you and your family if you ever need to use it in the event that swine flu reaches pandemic levels. I'm not a survivalist type of person that stores food and water in his bomb shelter but as far as swine flu is concerned, I'd rather have protective N95 particle respirator masks here in storage and not need them than need them and not have them.
I bought a couple boxes of N95 masks for family and friends "just in case". I'm hearing these masks are selling out quickly here in the United States so you may want to consider stocking up on some for your family and friends just in case they're needed. You don't want to be in a situation where you really need a mask to save your life but can't find any because they've all been sold out.
I really do hate writing these types of blogs but I feel that I have a responsibility to make this type of announcement public, especially since people are supposedly dying worldwide at an alarming rate. Most stores are completely sold out of the N95 Particle Respirator mask and people are hoarding them by the case-load. According to the experts, the N95 mask is the only mask that has a 98% filter efficiency level and is effective against particulate aerosols and is NIOSH approved (extremely important!). Most people aren't aware that if the mask they're using isn't a N95 mask it's not effective and won't protect the wearer against the deadly swine flu virus.
I've found a place to buy them cheaply online but they're selling out fast and I'm not sure how much longer they'll have them in stock. I hope none of us ever has to use them but if we do have to use them, I hope you have some stored away in the event that you need to use them to protect the lives of you and your family.
Lets all pray that this doesn't become a pandemic.
