KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad (pic) has dismissed a report that the outbreak of Influenza A (H1N1) at the all-boys fully-residential Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman (STAR) in Ipoh is growing.

The Health Minister said the outbreak is under control and the infected students are in stable condition.

“Only 22 students are still in the isolation room and their condition is also stable.

“The outbreak is under control and not growing as reported,” he told reporters after opening the Malaysian International Dental Show 2019 here on Friday (April 19).

Dr Dzulkefly also said that a report that STAR students are required to clean their hostel rooms without the supervision of the health authorities is also not true. - Bernama
