        Silent spread.

        Sub-Clinical and Sub-Diagnostic eH7N9 is probable in that age group. Perhaps better testing is required so that the virus is given fewer opportunities to incubate in full classrooms.

          * Cover the nose and mouth while sneezing or coughing, and hold the spit with a tissue and put it into a covered dustbin;
          * Avoid crowded places and contact with fever patients; and
          * Wear a mask when respiratory symptoms develop or when taking care of fever patients.
