Influenza A (H1N1) Info

Hi everyone,

H1N1 Flu cases are on the rise. To date, 29 cases have been reported in Brunei and hopefully no more to come. I know some of us, well almost all of us, would not be staying in during the holidays. So it is part of my obligation to share with you guys some tips/precautions that I've got from the MOH website.

10 steps for keeping yourself and others safe:

  1. Wash hands frequently - with soap or alcohol-based gel sanitizer or disposable wipes.
  2. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  3. Avoid close contact - especially with those who are sick
  4. Stay home when feeling not well
  5. Cover mouth and nose with tissue when coughing and sneezing
  6. Keep distance from others if you're unwell
  7. Practise good health habits - drink plenty of water, sleep well etc.
  8. Consult doctor if you have signs of serious illnesses such as difficulty in breathing, confusion and severe vomiting.
  9. Defer travel to affected places if possible.
  10. Keep updated with the situation.
Symptoms of Influenza (H1N1):
  • High Fever (>38 degree celcius)
  • Sore throat
  • Cough and runny nose
  • Joint and muscle aches
  • Fatigue
  • Breathlessness
  • Vomiting and Diarrhea occassionally
If you have any of those symptoms and have been visiting to affected areas, please go to clinics and hospitals for medical check-up and further treatments.

Lastly, have a nice holiday and stay safe everyone. :)
