Bahrain takes Extra Flu Precautions

As the holiday of Ramadan grows nearer, health ministries urge people to avoid congested spaces to try and reduce the cases of the swine flu.


The health ministries are also asking officials to create a region-wide H1N1 virus strategy to prevent the onset of a swine flu outbreak. Officials are asking that this plan be created in time for the opening of the school year.


The World Health Organization has already made the broad statement in asking people to avoid crowded settings this flu season.


The director of the Ministry of Health and chairman of the national committee said that the health ministries adopted the idea of home isolation in accordance with the standards set by the World Health Organization as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the swine flu virus among community members.
