hunying Kasama Voravan na Ayudhaya, secretary-general of the Office of the Basic Education Commission (OBEC), said Triamudomsuksanomklao and Nawaminthrachuthit Triamudomsuksanomklao schools closed Monday morning after students of both institutions tested positive to the new flu. Seven other students had flu-like symptoms and high fever.

The two schools will resume classes again on June 22.

Khunying Kasama added that 11 schools in Bangkok and surrounding provinces, including the Faculty of Public Health, Mahidol University, temporarily closed to curb the spread of A (H1N1) flu among students.

Currently, 60 students from six schools confirmed, having contracted the new flu. Most of students, 37 cases, were at Bangkok’s St. Gabriel’s College.

Thailand reported its first case of H1N1 flu on May 12 and its first domestic case in early June but there have been no fatalities.

The total number of H1N1 cases was recorded at 201 Monday. The number of new cases soared twelve-fold in less than a week.

The World Health Organization raised its global alert warning to a maximum level of six last Thursday. (TNA)


Train, bus operators step up cleansing measures against H1N1

BANGKOK, June 15  The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) and the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) stepped up preventive measures to disinfect trains and buses to prevent the spread of the Influenza A (H1N1).

SRT governor Yutthana Thapcharoen said the new measures included are the cleaning and disinfecting carried out at the terminals for each train trip at its origin and destination.

Earlier, such disinfecting was done only after trains crossed international borders on connecting routes to neighbouring countries, he said.

Workers spray disinfectant inside and outside trains. Seats and other passenger touching points on the trains are wiped with disinfectant. Blankets, towels, bed sheets, pillow covers for sleeping carriages are heated in dryers to kill germs.

An assessment will be conducted next month. If the measures are not effective enough, the SRT will increase the preventative measures to prevent the new flu, he added.

Meanwhile, Acting Director Chairat Sa-nguansue of the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) held a media conference on the BMTA measures to prevent the spread of the H1N1 virus.

He said the BMTA has launched five preventive measures, including cleaning handrails with disinfectant when buses arrive at bus terminals.

Curtains are sent to be laundered and ventilation fans operate every ten minutes. Bus drivers also wear masks as a part of the preventive measures being put in place. (TNA)
