Singapore H1N1 Latest News

At this time in writing, Singapore's confirmed H1N1 cases have grew to 236! There is indeed a mild form of community infection here with figures slowly and steadily on the rise.

The Education Ministry's home orders for students returning from overseas and students from schools with cases of H1N1 could only be effective if the students really do obey the instructions and stay home. I am less optimistic of the playful nature of some kids, when you want to keep them at home for some days, they would treat this 'extra holidays' as an extended break to have more fun and to go on more outings with their peers. If they do indeed carry the H1N1 virus, the interaction of them with the rest of the community is then by no means minimised.
