Remember how bird flu was supposed to be the next great pandemic, sentencing humanity to an unfortunate, if not untimely, end? Fear not, for Panasonic has created a filter that they claim is 99.999 percent effective in removing the virus (plus others like SARS and "normal" influenza) from the air we breathe.
