H1N1: School Closure is last resort.

That is what has been said by the Health Minister. Unless the teachers themselves are infected then the schools need not close. On top of that teachers are to check their students for symptoms every morning. Huh?? Would that work?

Alright there is no reason to panic (yet). But the trending has been up for the past week and the death count for H1N1 is a cause of concern. I mean we can't possibly wait till it reaches 3 digit figures.

There was a question should the headmasters be given the authority to close their school if they see it necessary. I think they should. Because to wait for approval from the district education office could take a long time.

I hope it wont be too late~
