Thailand, 6th of November 2009 (PDN): Parents from the international Bangkok Patana School (BPS)” where informed on Wednesday the 4th of November that an outbreak of the potentially fatal H1N1 virus had been detected in a few students who had recently returned from holidays overseas. The students and their year 6 and year 8 class mates have been sent home as a precautionary measure to ensure that the virus does not spread throughout the school.

A recent statement made by the Head of School at the BPS Mr Matthew Mills explained, “We have requested all children with influenza-type symptoms be kept at home and medically checked until such time as they have been certified fit to return to school. We have also been maintaining our high-level cleaning regime of the school buildings.”

It is believed that the BPS has taken the advice of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) over the sending home of nearly 300 students who will now be out of school for at least a week as a result of this new outbreak, however information provided by the school ensures that the students affected will be able to continue with their studies via the internet and other forms of correspondence.

Dr Malinee Sukavejworakit the deputy governor in charge of public health at the BMA explained that one student from the BPS has a confirmed case of the H1N1 virus discovered on the 29th of October whilst three others on the 2nd of November have been reported as having flu like symptoms, subsequently the students where isolated as a precautionary measure. As a result of this most recent outbreak, doctors and nurses have been exclusively assigned to the school by the BMA to avoid further spread of the virus. As of the 6th of November no more confirmed cases have been reported at the BPS or any other school in the surrounding area.

In addition, the month of October saw a further two more patients die due to complications with the type A H1N1 virus, bringing Thailand?s total fatality count to 184 people. This information was provided by the Public Health Ministry and announced on Wednesday the 4th of November.

There has also been some breaking news from the US, where doctors have diagnosed a 12 year old cat with the potentially fatal H1N1 flu virus. This is the first case of its nature and as a result the feline has been quarantined for examination and further testing.
