ALOR SETAR: Two more trainees at the Dusun Minda Resort in Kuala Nerang have been found with Influ-enza-like Illness (ILI) symptoms.
“As of now, 62 trainees are being monitored by medical staff. The two joined the group when they showed ILI symptoms on Monday evening,” said camp commander Lt-Kol Hasnan Rashid.
“The good news is one of them recovered and medical staff have discharged him. He was allowed to rejoin the rest of the healthy trainees (yesterday morning).”
Lt-Kol Hasnan said the trainees under observation, including the four tested positive for H1N1 virus, were in a stable condition and that “everything is under control”.
Kedah Health Department director Datuk Dr Ismail Abu Taat concurred.
“It will take about two weeks for them to recover fully. It is not life-threatening unless it afflicts those who have health problems like lung disease and diabetes or women who are pregnant,” said Dr Ismail.
He said like any other respiratory diseases, the virus spread through the air and could be prevented by observing the cough and sneeze etiquettes.
State Health Com-mittee chairman Datuk Dr Leong Yong Kong advised trainees at the Dusun Minda camp to be extra careful with their hygiene, urging them to wear their face masks all the time.
