The H1N1 flu virus though is not considered potently deadly but the spread of the virus is definitely extremely rapid. There are also concerns that the virus might mutate into a more potent or deadly type, render it undetectable and even undestructable by existing methods and medications or vaccines.
It is time to stock up on those protective face masks! Practise a higher level of personal hygiene and avoid crowded enclosed areas.
