Bird Flu | My First Face Mask | China

Is it panic slowly creeping in? I don’t know but slowly I am getting the feeling that Bird Flu might become a bigger problem than I at first envisioned.

Sure, the media don’t really help when now it’s daily in the headlines. It also isn’t very comforting to live in a country where bird flu is likely coming from. (see article Newsweek: The flimsy wall of China

Tamiflu is almost everywhere sold out eventhough it’s not even certain it will actually help that much. You apparently should only take it when you get the flu symptoms which is always hard to know.

When do you take an aspirin for instance, when you have a starting headache or when it keeps on bugging you for some time.

According to Reuters a 12-year-old girl has died suffering flu-like symptoms in a village in central China where the mainland’s third outbreak of bird flu in a week has been reported. It isn’t yet confirmed that it’s a bird flu mutation gone crazy but chances are it is.

I bought my first face/flu mask yesterday. It probably won’t help that much but at least it is still available.
