My son's ( 3 yrs old) teacher called me this afternoon to inform me that MOH has ordered them today to cease all lessons with immediate effect till 23.08.2010. MOH told the school that a student had contracted HFMD and the school did not make any attempt to notify them. MOH told the school that the child's doctor notified them but why not the school. The actual fact was ( the teacher told me ) the parent of this child continue to send him/her to school selfishly. During one of the daily check of HFMD, the teacher did question the parent but he/she lied that the child has merely got some skin problems. In fact, the child had seen a doctor earlier and the doctor confirmed the child has contracted the virus!!! I just couldn't believe it!! What kind of parents are they??? I dont't even send my child to school when he has fever, flu, cough or suspected cases of chicken pox/ HFMD because there are so many little ones in school!! I just simply couldn't understand what type of mentality they have! Don't they know that the virus can be deadly!!! Now, I have to check on my son endlessly. Although he's not from the same class, they still share the same room during assembly and music lessons.
