Flu Epidemic Has Handkerchief Maker, My Hanky Inc., Working 24/7

NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the Flu Epidemic hitting America like a tsunami, handkerchief maker My Hanky Inc. has been working around the clock to fulfill orders. People everywhere are looking for a good quality handkerchief that can help prevent the spread of the flu.

As the Flu Epidemic continues to worsen, killing thousands of Americans and 23 children as of January 19, 2013, emergency rooms around the county are overwhelmed with flu patients. Health professionals say that while the vaccine will prevent the flu in a certain number of people, nothing can replace the importance of Personal Hygiene. Chronic coughing and sneezing from someone that has the flu is a main catalyst for contacting the disease.

"People are doing anything they can to either contain or prevent the spreading of the Flu in their family," says Frank Marino the firm's president. Many people today have stopped using handkerchiefs years ago because of their harshness and non absorbent quality; they are all paper thin, made in China and abrasive to a sensitive nose.

In New York, Governor Cuomo declared a statewide public health emergency and issued an executive order allowing for the first time pharmacists to administer flu vaccinations to patients between Six Months and 18 years of age. They had previously only been authorized to administer the vaccine to people 18 years of age and older.

Our phones are ringing off the hook and our website is buzzing as we continue to receive more orders as a direct result

of the Flu epidemic. People are frantically searching for a superior handkerchief to protect them and their families from this awful disease. We are working seven days a week around the clock and shipping all orders the same day to meet the demand.
