Are you grounded?

When i flipped through the newspaper today... the case of AH1N1 in Malaysia has increased another 14 cases as per yesterday count ... I was having some concern as a lots of selfish people out wondering @ the public place with sneezing here and there... Everywhere sneeze sneeze... 


This morning i went to The Garden to attend a discussion group for my exam next Friday... I was @ Starbie as early as 9am (yaya! I was in Starbie again... blek!) Anyway, that's not my main point... my main topic for this entry is AH1N1....

As i walked down to the LG before i about to leave to get my car @ the car park... there was this auntie who standing near the CIMB bank carried a stack of tissues sneezing and sneezing and sneezing... i was looking at her sarcastically... My staring has indicated that she was so selfish and She was so uneasy then walked away with lots of sneezing ...  I was so uncomfortable as i think she has the higher possibility of infected by AH1N1... why was she in the mall and not @ home quarantine... I thinks this kind of people should have jailed for spreading the virus if they really infected by AH1N1... Selfish! Selfish and Selfish~ :p

Anyway, after i left The Garden, I went over to the Curve and bunked into Tony Roma to further my study since my group members @ the discussion decided to call it a day... why Tony Roma? hehehe... it served RM0.50 hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate...) and a 144mbps connection... hoo hoo very nice environment too... But that's not the point too... what is my point? AH1N1... :p

Before i left The Curve, i came across an interesting NOTICE issued by The Curve Management... Here's what i saw


Since the caption is quite small for all of you... I have retype all the words below:- 

Protect yourself Against Influenza A (H1N1)
If you have Flu-like Symptoms such as fever, cough, muscle / joint pain, sore throat or runny nose, seek medical treatment from the nearest clinic or hospital especially if you have recently traveled from a country with the H1N1 virus.

Cover your nose and mouth with tissue or a handkerchief when coughing or sneezing.

Wear a face mask to reduce the risk of transmission of such disease.

Avoid close contact with person who appear unwell and have fever cough.

Avoid shaking hands but do bow your head in greeting or place your right hand on the upper left side of your chest to show respect.

Wash your hands often with soap and water thoroughly or use appropriate antiseptic hand cleaners.

Hmmmm.... l think there should be another clause... "DO NOT go out to the public place and spread the virus... You are grounded!!!.... " So i think the auntie has just covered the nose and mouth when sneezing ... she could just argued that Malaysian Health Minister did not enforce people who are sick must stay @ home... :p 

What do you think the Malaysian Health Minister should have done better to prevent the spread of the AH1N1?

I absolutely agree. People who are having cold should quarantine themselves. I think what we can do is to stay away from crowded places.
