39 Cases of A(H1N1) virus in the Philippines

Just this morning, the Health Secretary of the Philippines confirmed that there were 6 new cases of influenza A virus in the Philippines, reaching the swine flu cases to 39 people.

The virus that came from Mexico, which then spread to more than 40 countries, and lately the flu had entered the Philippines. This was worsened by the opening of the School year 2009-2010. Students from abroad are going home, and virus-carrier might be one of them.

The Department of Health of the Philippines advised those students to self-quarantine themselves for 10 days to assure that they don’t have the disease by the time they go to school.Spread of the virus is faster in the School premises due to the fact that student interact with each other.

The Department of Education is ready for an outbreak. They would suspend classes if ever a spread would be reported.

I hope the disease won’t spread out.

I know that the government will help us in this.
