People wearing a surgical mask looks weird?

I watched news that a passenger is telling his family was stared at by people in Australian airport because his family was wearing surgical mask. I know it's no odd because many countries don't have the habit.
And surgical masks don't stop viruses. Actually CDC isn't recommending wearing mask to people. But they are saying two things.
1. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Mask helps us to keep these factors. So Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare recommends wearing it IF we have a sneeze or cough. HOWEVER, if we have any symptoms of contagious diseases we shouldn't contact with others. CDC is also telling that "If you get the flu, CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them."
At least I wear a mask in the train even if it doesn't have much effect. I'm glad that nobody star at me. Probably mask makers are also glad.

By the way, I've started to watch House M.D.(Japanese title is Dr. House). It's very interesting. Oh, too late? Don't blame me because this DVD started to be sold recently in Japan!! When can I watch season 4?
House, M.D. - Season One
