H1N1 Flu

H1N1 is like a common word in many countries and from the originally called pig flu, it has evolved into swine flu and this new term H1N1. As of November 8, 2009, over 503,536 cases of H1N1 flu infections have been reported worldwide. With most people recovering smoothly after the flu infection, those with existing ailments have a higher chance of dying from H1N1. Worldwide, at least 6,260 deaths has been linked to H1N1 virus.

Prevention is still better than cure. Therefore, if going on flights or accessing congested areas such as subway or train stations, then it is better to wear a flu mask, of high quality such as N95.

On my trip to Tokyo last week, i've noticed some interesting face masks including some that can provide moisture to the wearer. Before going into the subway, i even saw a mom who gave her son 2 layers of 3 ply face masks to wear... but i'd rather stick to the one that has been proven to be able to filter out 99% of the infections/bacteria such as N95 8210 model or N95 8110s (suitable for kids).
