Malaysia : Don't Treat H1N1 Lightly Although Second Wave Has Not Struck

Via Bernama:

" The second wave of the influenza A (H1N1) has not occurred in Malaysia yet, but it does not mean that the people can treat the matter lightly, reminded Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

He said individuals suffering from fever, cough or cold or showing symptoms of the H1N1 were advised to seek treatment, and members of the public were encouraged to take preventive measures such as wearing masks in public places.

"At present, there are still small clusters reported...they (H1N1) have not spread to the people and the situation is of course under control.

"I wish to emphasise, this is not the second wave of the H1N1, but signs of an increase are there and we wish to remind the public to be prepared to face the second wave," he told reporters at the Parliament lobby, here on Monday.

As of last Saturday, the total number of fatalities due to the H1N1 was reported at 79 people."
