The severity of H1N1 (aka Swine Flu) in DLSU

So how severe is the H1N1 problem in DLSU? It turns out to be not as severe as the panic that surrounds it.

I just emailed Br Armin Luistro, and he said that "There is not much danger even for residents like the Brothers. We merely suspended classes as a precautionary measure to ensure that there will be limited public gatherings as we do contact tracing of those who may have been affected. As far as we can see, transmission seems to be very limited but we are still doing contact tracing with the help of DOH. In any case, DOH also tells us that all cases are considered mild and not life-threatening."

Nice news to hear :)
