Malaysia : College bars visitors due to flu illness

Via New Straits Times, the whole report :

" ALOR STAR: Mara Junior Science College (MRSM) in Pendang is now off- limits to all visitors. It had been temporarily "closed" even to parents after 34 students at the school were down with influenza-like-illness (ILI) last Thursday.

Kedah Mara director Ahmad Rakhli Hassan said the college's management had opted to temporarily close the junior college to contain the virus from spreading to outsiders.

"All boarders at the school have also been provided with a face mask each.

"We will work closely with the health department to monitor students who were affected with ILI symptoms," he said, adding there were no new cases at the school.Ahmad Rakhli, however, could not furnish details on the total number of boarders at the school.

It was reported that 34 students at the school were quarantined in their dorms after they developed ILI symptoms last week. Doctors keeping tabs on the students said their condition was returning to normal."
