If you're really serious about a mask, or more accurately a respirator, then one should not mess with the fiber and paper masks such as you find in
the hardware store.
Viruses will suck right though them. May as well take it off.
One can Google JonDon, and look up respirators under the Personal Protection Equipment.
To stop a virus, it will take a HEPA rated filtration system.
HEPA means it will filter out 99.97% of all particulates greater than .3 microns in size. Look at the 3M 6800 series, full face respirators, and then
look to get at least two sets of P100 HEPA/Organic Gas filters.
Now, you are ready.
And don't forget to wash your hands.
This isn't over. There will be a second mutation in the months to come which we have nothing to use against it.
I wouldn't go by the numbers you see now. Right now it's a swine virus, in humans. When we get the human flu, mixed with the swine flu, the
proverbial crap is gonna hit the fan.
At least according to virologists and pandemic specialists.
