That is 17 years ago, are you sure those masks are still usable?
Why wouldn't they be?

The fact remains, though, that masks such as those are only intended to stop an infected person contaminating their immediate surroundings via droplets from coughing or breathing.

They don't really protect the wearer at all, and those governments issuing them to the public are really only doing so to be seen to be doing something...
