As you can hear and read it on the newspaper, this pandemic is growing worst in our country. In our place, even the doctor attending those quarantine victims was also affected. Would you believe those cases rising up or just media exaggeration? What's your opinion on this...

Well in our country there is always the tendency to exaggerate on this matters but as our DOH has said it there is nothing to be alarmed yet despite the increase of incidence in our country. That is expected as the virus is highly contagious but is still under control since most of the victims were able to recover from it already. the first casualty was because she was having other illnesses besides the virus but all healthy victims were able to recover from it. We should also be aware that there is an increasing incidence in Dengue too which is more frightening than that of the AH1N1 flu virus. Dengue is a much more deadlier disease that is in season today as the rainy season has arrived in our country.

Yeah my friend you're right. Dengue is more deadlier than this AH1N1 virus. I guess we are living in the same country. I was just doubt if this media people exagerated this case to win the poplarity of DOH head for the coming Presidential election...thanks a lot..

I don't know were you are from but I'm in the US and I don't know if alot of people got sick I don't know the exact number in the US. In this state they got 10 sick people the last time I heard in the news but I don't know if they have found more I hope not. I also hope that will end because it's really scarry to know that there is something that looks like a simple flu that can actually kill.

there have been a few cases here, I don't think the media is exagerating at all, they have been very fair here and did not make it out to be bigger than it is. At least where I live.

I think we cant stop anymore the A(H1N1) spreading in our community. Is almost infected every community in our country especially schools. But the exaggeration of the new ma cause people panic and people have do panic they buy face mask that cause the price of medical that prevent A(H1N1).

You're right my friend. Panic causes some unusual feelings. I think our government should find immediately an exact solutions and remedy on this virus not to spread more to our country....thanks for dropping by...

i actually like how DOH is handling the situation. The constant reports, updates and advice to the public causes less fear and panic in a way that you know what to do. fear of the unknown makes people panic and do crazy things. As for the spread of the virus, there's only so much they (DOH) can do to prevent it. let's not really blame it on them. i mean, people dont really know they have the virus until symptoms arise and by that time, they have already interacted with a lot of people. and contact tracing is not so easy especially in a populated place like the Metro Manila/Philippines. i mean in MRT/LRT alone, you dont know whether one or two passengers are virus carriers. so it's bound to spead. hopefully, the rate of infection will die down soon. And it will if we do our own way of prevention. Personally, i do my best to disinfect my belongings, wash my hands regularly make make less contact with people as possible. our office has a higher risk of being penetrated by the virus since, employees here travel a lot and we come in contact with people of diff nationalities who travel a lot.. hopefully the country (and all countries) will be free from this threat soon.

Yes my friend let's just hope and pray this virus would be gone. I think, our DOH head rides the popularity of this virus. I have a feeling that this man would run this coming election...

I am sure that there's a problem in DOH management of AH1N1 virus because the numbers of affected are really rising.. I believe that they should have postponed classes since since a lot of cases were transmitted on schools.. I really don't know why the two Koreans who are the first cases got pass the AH1N1 security in the airport.. They should have quarantined every one who came from abroad for two weeks at home.. But what they did is just quarantined who were diagnosed with a fever on the airport. We are lucky that most cases are said to be mild.. All i hope is that the numbers of those infected with AH1N1 will soon go down.

same here my friend. We will just hope this case would lower down and no more victims would be added on the list. About the case of the two Koreans, it's no wonder if those criminals could bribed some or our corrupt government oficials how much more this light cases..We will hope and pray this really be solved..Thanks for sharing..
