Bird flu awareness

Earlier this week, teaching staff all got this in their mailboxes. It shows the spread of avian flu around the world, with casualty figures (infected and deaths). Vietnam is the worst hit with 93 infections and 42 deaths, followed by Thailand (21, 13) then Indonesia (12, 7), Cambodia (4, 2) and China (3, 2). Well that's the ones we know about at least.

If we travel to any of those areas, we are required to tell the school, and the school is required to inform the Foreign Ministry.
