Its alarming!

Saw in today's mypaper that from 23 - 29 Mar'08 the HFMD cases has increased by 702 cases!!! My heart skipped a beat n my jaws almost dropped to the floor!!! In the short 13 weeks we have a total of 4423 HFMD cases! This time round its the Enterovirus 71 (EV71) virus.

Practice good hygiene, this will curb the virus;

• Wash hands with soap before eating and after going to the toilet;
• Cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing;
• Do not share eating utensils.

Remember to clean ur kiddo's toys frequently. Clean the table top, or any where u think u will come into contact frequently.

I am going to teach Little DinoEgg to sneeze and cough (he is having cough currently) with his hands covering his nose & mouth.

Let's all work together to fight this virus!
