This is not a funny moment.
44 deaths had been confirmed today in Malaysia by the cause of Influenza A virus. 2000++ have been contaminated.
Some of you all might think that it is still safe, the virus haven't reach our school yet, but please be aware of your health and take care of it. It is your life that you're holding now. It's either you want to wear a mask or not, you can make a difference.
Why should we wear masks?
It may look weird in the first place, but look at the bright side everyone.
By wearing a mask, whether you're sick or not, it shows that you care for your own life and others as well. It's because you won't know when you're going to get sick, and you'll carry the virus along with you. When you make contact, either talking, shaking hands, hugging each other, kissing and etc, you're spreading it to your friends and family. Is this how you care of your friends? By sharing viruses to them?
Thus, wearing a mask prevents you from touching your nose and mouth so that your hands will not get dirty. Besides that, when you talk to your friends, it prevents your saliva, bacterias to be come out directly from your mouth.
If everybody is wearing a mask, it will lower the percentage of contamination and contagion among us Malaysians, so please all of you who read this post, start thinking about others and yourself and wear a mask everyday when you go out. You will truly save someone if you help spread this news to your friends.
Help pray for the patients that are suffering from H1N1 virus. Thanks.
