The weather is becoming cold this week and it is at the peak of the influenza season in Hong Kong as well as the first day of school. It’s necessary for us to prevent contracting it in our daily lives.
Firstly, we can start from every day life. If we feel sick, we need to stay at home to take rest and do not go to work or school, especially the students. If there are serious cases at school, the authority may device a suspension of classes for a week. In this way, it will disturb the student’s academic performance. Moreover, after sneezing or coughing, we need to wash hands thoroughly. If you get sick, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
Apart from the personal side, the government or the schools also need to be attentive. Firstly, the government should give virus-prevention guidelines and the precaution to all schools with a view to keeping the outbreaks under control. Furthermore, if there are more than three cases of students influenza infection at the same time, the schools should report to the Department of Health.
Finally, should we pass through this winter, all the things will turn better.
