LET'S STOP THE GERMS: It is usually the people who are unwell wearing face masks in public. But Taiwanese singer Vivian Hsu, 44, who is suffering from a bad bout of flu, was unable to do so when she was getting her make-up done while preparing to record her songs.

In a photo posted on her Instagram on Tuesday, her staff were seen wearing face masks backstage so as not to catch the bug.

She also put up a video of the entire film crew in face masks, which was captioned: "I am sorry to everyone for having to wear the face masks the whole day. Thanks for the hard work."
