Coronavirus is spreading around the world, and the scare has forced many to buy face masks to protect themselves.
These masks are relatively cheap, but there are those seeking to make a profit off this disease at the expense of those who are worried. For a box of 20, some pharmacies were charging $120. This I find most appalling.
The flu is proving more dangerous this year, and that should be a far greater concern. It is not too late to get a flu shot.
So let's use common sense over these dangerous diseases. Let's be well.
