Influenza A (H1N1) Is on The Rise
The figure of people being diagnosed with A(H1N1) is on the rise every day. This is very critical. As everyone is worrying of the second wave for the virus, situation is really not healthy.
There are some of us that reluctant to go to hospital even if they discover that they have the symptoms. They are afraid of being quarantine or marked as one of A(H1N1) carrier. Hey, this is not the right way of thinking!! It is better to be safe than sorry! It can cost your life.
More and more school in Malaysia had been close due to the spread of this virus. Even BF's cousin was sent back home due to the school closed down for a week. As of yesterday, 1371 total cases has been reported with four death cases. 58% is local cases. This shows that local cases is going in the up trend compared to when the disease started.
Some common symptoms of A(H1N1):

So, for those that have all the symptom, don't wait anymore. Go to the nearest clinic or hospitals for treatment!!
Let us do something as one of the effort to stop the spread of this virus. What we can do is to make sure that we always clean our hand. When we cough, close our mouth with our hand or tissue. Wash our hand after that.
