Unbeleivable -- can't believe the hype. Don't people realize that the spread of this flu will most likely be through food prepared by someone coming down with the virus. Masks are not going to protect them from that! Cases reported in US have already been recovered from the flu. Wjy do we allow the media to do this to us??
