Influenza A H1N1 is spreading in the campus..??

What is the A (H1N1) influenza?

It is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A strains of the influenza virus. It regularly causes high flu outbreaks in pigs but with low death rates. There are four main sub-types of the virus, but the most recent isolated influenza viruses from pigs have been H1N1 viruses.

By today, almost everyone in the country are so alert with this viruses and disease. I can say that when someone caught a fever, he/she would go to see the doctor as soon as possible because the virus had been spreading quite wildly. I as well am pretty scared of the disease as till today, there is no vaccine available to protect against the A (H1N1) flu. Further more, the viruses can be transmitted as easy as respiratory droplets and direct contact (skin or fomites).

Last night at 7-ish, there was a hostel officer came into our block and made an announcement that the Pusat Kesihatan is opened until night. Roomate & I discussed about it and we came to the conclusion that it was because of the H1N1 issue, and that they are taking precaution steps in case anyone caught a fever. Then few minutes later i was talking to a junior and he said that there were 28 students before him at the Pusat Kesihatan waiting to see the doctor. isn't that a freaking a lot of people?? 28 student demam in the same day? it sounds pretty scary to me, ok.

Then during dinner, a friend received 2 sms saying that one of our student had been a H1N1 suspect. i was a bit shocked+surprised+etc. but i was eating kan..so, makan dulu baru sambung terkejut.haha. so i refuse to believe it, because the news did give me a goose bump. so bla bla bla..went back, did some work etc etc etc. there was a knocked on the door around 1215am. the knock sounded harsh so agak mcm kelam kabut nak bukak pintu. and to my surprise (again!) there were 4 people, with one of them holding a book, asking for name & phone number & school & matrix no. and the other older woman took a thermometer to check my body temperature. so, what was that for, and she said that they were checking room to room, EVERYONE. to check if anyone caught a fever. sampai macam tu??? it made me scared gile sangat.

This morning when i reached school around 9.15am, i saw Dr.Nurul, our hostel penggawa (warden) talking on the phone and i caught a few lines sounds like this..

"..diorang kene pindah sekarang jugak. Kene kosongkan aras 3 tu."

i thought they want to do some more renovation or whatever so xlah nak hirau sangat. Then..

"..carik nombor telepon student, call diorang."

ok. kenapa sangat nak kelam kabut,usually they'll give letter like a few weeks before ker..so that the students will get ready. hati macam dah x sedap lagi.

"..suruh pindah seminggu, bawak baju je pindah xpayah kosongkan barang. Dr.Meenal suruh kosongkan aras tu."

now i really don't like it when Dr.Meenal's name came out in the conversation. What's the relationship between a doctor from pusat kesihatan with hostel things? okay. mintak2 saya telah salah dengar perbualan itu & nothing serious is going on.

bubbles darling, take care of yourself. insyaAllah xde pape.. :)
