The Star

KUALA LUMPUR: The Seri Cempaka International School in Batu 9, Cheras here has been closed for a week, Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lay said on Tuesday, after a student tested positive for Influenza A(H1N1).

The number of cases nationwide increased to 69 with 10 new cases, he said, with two of them being local transmissions.

SJK (C) Jalan Davidson here and SRK Assunta 2 in Petaling Jaya were closed earlier after students were confirmed with the virus.

SMK Seksyen 9 Shah Alam, SMK Damansara Utama in Petaling Jaya and SM Wangsa Maju in Kuala Lumpur have each had one class stopped from Monday.

Meanwhile, Education Ministry director-general Tan Sri Alimuddin Md Dom says parents with children in the affected schools can keep them at home for the rest of the week if they are worried or the children feel unwell.

"All they would need to do is to inform the school; there is no need for a medical certificate from a doctor," he said.
