Singapore confirms first case of swine flu
SINGAPORE (AFP) – A 22-year-old Singaporean woman who returned from New York has tested positive for swine flu, in the city-state's first confirmed case, the Ministry of Health said.
"Singapore has confirmed its first case of influenza A(H1N1)," the ministry said in a statement.
It said the patient was being treated at a communicable disease centre and was in a stable condition.
The woman was in New York from May 14-24, returning on a Singapore Airlines flight on Tuesday, during which she developed a cough.
The ministry said all her "close contacts" will be quarantined and provided with antiviral medication
was on the internet too. n i think straits time.
but the authorities say no need to be alarm cos its controlled as sg is well prepared.
I just bought the CADI T560 thermometer from Guardian at 86... So far so Good....temp can be took in an instant... they got one your warranty as well...ha better get a thermometer to pay safe...
It's really more and more scarly
it's scary but how come i still see people bringing their kids out like nothing has happened.....mmmm...i am staying more at home and hardly go out unless need to.
Urm, I'm here in Switzerland - supposedly in the middle of all the action. Heh.
Schools are still open here (compared to in Malaysia where some are closed) and well, life is quite normal. In fact, most people aren't even wearing masks or things like that. We have been told by the hospital and health authorities to do the following:
- Wash hands ALL THE TIME - before and after eating, toilet visits, touching someone, etc.
- Never cough, sneeze or blow your nose without covering your mouth with a tissue (a hand doesn't count). This is something a lot of Asians do. When I was in Malaysia, omigod, people actually do all that INTO your face!!!!
- No spitting.
- If the need arises, wear a mask or cover your mouth/nose with a bandana/scarf.
- Avoid contact with sick people unless really necessary. If so, make sure you wear a mask and wash your hands regularly.
A lot of people have asked me if I'm worried about 1) my parents coming to visit and 2) my baby flying at around 1 month old. Well, I dont't have a choice. Life needs to go on and if we have to, we have to. Just take the necessary precautions and leave the rest - as dismissive as it sounds - to God. :/
