H1N1: Are the measures taken sufficient?
August 6, 2009 10:17pm CST
The H1N1 flu has been around for quite some time, claiming hundreds of victims across the globe. Many are wearing masks to protect themselves, but is this measure sufficient? In my countries, schools and colleges are closed for a week and some agencies are closed, too. Would closure of such places help containing the spread of this flu, or is there an alternative? What about you and your country?

NO! and I am just furious with the way those so call professors coming out with really stu*id suggestions! and if we don't control this well enough, we have another SARS and this time it will be worse coz it's spreading very slowly, and not having lots of warning signs! People has yet to really learn from the past!

The government takes the easy way out - close schools, close offices, close anything where there are cases of H1N1. They believe that that's gonna curtail the spread of the virus - maybe, maybe not. I'm not a viral expert - seriously I wonder what others are doing in other countries. I don't think I'm gonna know because not many appear to be interested in responding to this topic of discussion. Well, cwong... when was the last time we learnt our lesson? Hmm....52 years ago? :)
