    Many classes in Guangzhou were suspended, primary and middle school students had fever, H1N1 flu broke out, and parents were in a hurry!

    Many classes in Guangzhou were suspended, primary and middle school students had fever, H1N1 flu broke out, and parents were in a hurry!

    This year's swine flu is still very serious. Many schools across the country are closed because students have a fever, and kindergartens are also closed to many children because of swine flu. Of course, adults should also pay attention, especially those with underlying diseases, it is best to go out for a walk, take preventive measures, and enhance physical fitness!

    I thought we had survived after the new strain died out, but to my surprise, another wave of flu came and went. Swine flu is no less contagious than Newcastle; if one student in a class gets infected, they all get infected. Three years ago, we had no concept of the epidemic and were optimistic. But now, as long as there is any sign of trouble, many people will panic. But for children, their parents' uneasiness affects them too.

    Due to the increase in swine flu cases, classes in many places in Guangzhou were suspended, and primary and middle school students had fever.

    The recent outbreak of swine flu in Guangzhou was very serious. There were so many cases of children that the hospitals were overcrowded and the queues reached thousands. Today, some netizens said that due to the increase in swine flu cases, some classes in some schools in Guangzhou had to be suspended, and an unusually large number of children sought treatment in hospitals due to fever. Teachers are asking students not to hide their illnesses and to attend classes with illnesses, as there appear to be more suspensions than before.

    Around Qingming, flu cases like this will increase, so you must pay attention to personal hygiene. The symptoms and speed of transmission this time are stronger than last year's "Yangkang". I hope that the swine flu will disappear after the Ching Ming Festival.

    Parents: crazy

    Parents are panicked. There have been too many cases this year where one person gets swine flu and whole families are affected. The children had recurring high fevers and ended up in hospital where they were prescribed antiviral drugs and are still recovering. Things just got better, but now it's back to square one.

    In fact, swine flu is not a new phenomenon this year. In previous years, there were also such cases, but there was no large-scale suspension of classes like now. During the school closures, children's learning progress was delayed again, but in terms of children's health, this is not a big problem. As soon as their health returns to normal, they can go back to school at any time and spend more time afterwards catching up on lessons they missed.

    what the author has to say

    The symptoms after infection are somewhat similar to those of the new coronavirus, so people are easily confused. The group most affected by the virus is students. If you have children at home, you should wear a mask when you go out, wash your hands regularly, and ventilate.
