Yet another case of the Influenza A/H1N1 virus has been confirmed, this time at a primary school in Port-of-Spain.

The Ministry of Health yesterday said one case of the virus, also known as the swine flu, has been confirmed at St Theresa’s Girls’ RC School in Woodbrook, while another suspected case has also been reported at the school.

In a statement, the ministry said it had advised the Ministry of Education to close the school for the rest of the week.

“The situation will be closely monitored and continuously assessed throughout the week and the public will be kept informed of any new developments,” the ministry said.

The development comes in the wake of reports of at least three confirmed cases at Grant Memorial Primary School in San Fernando.

Although classes at Block One of Grant Memorial have been suspended within the last few days, parents and students have been calling for the entire school to be closed and sanitised.

Teachers and students stayed away from classes again yesterday for fear of contracting the virus.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Health, in the release, said it would be hosting a meeting next week with representatives of the Ministry of Education and their main stakeholders to assess H1N1- related risks in the current environment, revisit and confirm established protocols and provide appropriate guidance as needed.

The ministry added that regional health officers were, in the meantime, liaising with schools to provide any assistance needed and ensure safe school environments.

It also urged parents to keep children with flu-like symptoms at home and to seek medical advice as needed.

This is the third wave that we are bracing for. Back to the basics.
