Schools are still off!

Apparently, the second term school holidays have been extended for another week, following the rising number of Influenza A H1N1 in Brunei.

As of the time of writing, no less than 25 cases have been confirmed in Brunei. All these happened within a week. The big number of cases reported is due to a few causes; among them are returning travellers during the school holidays and returning students from the oversea studies. It was feared that the congregation of students in their schools might increase the number of confirmed cases. It might be a wise move, but will it really make a difference?

I hope that parents would keep their children at home and not letting them go to crowded places. It would be missing the points of trying to controlling the infections while big gatherings of people still taking place.
