MO,7/2/2018, JOHOR BARU: A Year 2 pupil from SK Taman Dahlia in Pasir Gudang has been confirmed to have been infected with influenza A. “It is confirmed that a child was warded at a private hospital on Feb 4 after being infected with influenza A,” said Johor Health, Environment, Education and Information Committee chairman Datuk Ayub Rahmat.
“The patient was discharged on Feb 6 after receiving treatment, and the child’s health is getting better,” he said in a statement here Wednesday (Feb 7). Ayub said authorities had investigated why a class at the school was closed.
This came after the mother informed the school of her child’s case. “SK Taman Dahlia took the proactive measure of transferring students to another classroom while their original classroom was being cleaned.
“The Health Department also carried out checks to see whether other students showed any similar symptoms, but until now, there is only that one case from the school,” he added. Ayub said his department would continue to monitor the situation with nearby clinics.
