Haze..

The sky is clearer yesterday late evening, and thanks to the downpour this morning, the sky is much more clearer today.. Now the sky is quite dark, hope it will rain soon :)

I was on call yesterday in hospital. Yesterday while doing ward rounds in the ward. I noticed every patients wearing face masks as well, not in one ward, but in all the wards. Btw, I'm wearing face mask as well; the surgical disposible 3-ply tie on type of face mask. Out of curiosity, I asked the ward nurse what is going on... And I was told that this was an order from the hospital director. Well, something good actually.. :) I hope this action was taken not because the the minister & the state health director is visiting my hospital yesterday morning, but the hospital director is really concern about the patients health...

I thought surgical masks don't really help? you need those N95 grade stuff

cheat,
wearing the surgical mask is better than not wearing anything :)

Anyway, wearing the N95 mask is damn hot & damn suffocating ;) I wear that before during the SARS time. Cos we are on duty (rotation) to take care of one confirmed SARS patient.. (He succumbed later on btw..)

Not many can "tahan" wearing this mask for many hours. I have difficulty in breathing even wearing it for a short duration.
