Ministries Take Class Action

IN an effort to enhance swine-flu control in schools, China's education and health ministries have issued a joint notice concerning class closures.

Classes of primary and middle schools should be shut for seven days if at least five cases were detected with acute respiratory infections within a day or at least 30 percent of overall students showed symptoms in a day.

A school should be shut for seven days if the number of students on sick leave due to acute respiratory infections has impacted school operations after health officials carry out risk appraisals and education authorities agree, according to the official notice.

Universities can decide inhouse whether classes need to be closed, according to the notice.
