PTA forum on AH1N1
The scare has somewhat died down due to the mild cases affecting the local victims here but it's still around. About 95% of those affected by the virus has reportedly gotten well, according to the Department of Health. It's a good sign that the AH1N1 virus is but a mild version of influenza.
But as the global pandemic continue to spread around Metro Manila, the local government and school officials together called for a forum with the parents in my daughter's school. Better be informed than sorry.
Stop worrying about it. But continue to wash hands regularly, take Vitamin C to boost immune system, cover mouth when sneezing, temporarily avoid physical contact with persons having flu-like symptoms (but please don't be scared of them and don't discriminate them!), go on a self-quarantine when ill, have a hand sanitizer/alcohol handy wherever you go so you can clean yourself anytime.
