Flu outbreak hits kindergarten
The Health Bureau reported a flu outbreak at the Choi Nong Chi Tai School. A total of 17 students from the kindergarten were affected.
All affected students received medical treatment and are in stable condition. There were no cases that needed hospitalisation.
But the bureau stated that most of the affected students did not get the anti-influenza vaccine during this winter. Health authorities collected samples from some sick students and asked the school to observe infection control measures.
Currently all Macau residents have free access to influenza vaccination. So far, 73,000 citizens were administrated the vaccine early this winter, including 18,200 elderly aged over 60 years and 6,300 children aged between 6 months and 6 years.
In addition, the campaign has included 36,200 students, teachers and employees in primary and secondary schools and 5,600 patients with chronic diseases.
