The British Medical Journal is the official publication - and mouthpiece - of the British Medical Association.

It's made worse by the fact that the problem has also become an opportunity for criminals - only this morning we received a spam claiming to advertise the only face-mask that offers protection against the virus. So, in this, the first of what will be a series of items on those parts of the authoritative news that doesn't reach the attention threshold of the superficial media, we look at what the BMA/BMJ says about beards in the healthcare sector.
