Parents be patient!

Let all of us make ourselves aware that swine flu is a deadly virus and until now, there is no proper treatment for it.

The children, specially who are aged under 12, cannot understand the impact of the disease.

If infected, it will spread among the groups and will transmit the same to the family members and also will affect the society.

Even if you tell the children who are affected not to move around or restrict them to particular area, they are either agitated or forget the same after sometime and keep coming out of the restricted or confined area (even you keep them at home) and create a sort of risk.

There is problem that the detection takes time and even if they have mild symptoms, they run the risk of spreading the same to others

Now, the whole world is facing this problem and the swine flu spread across the globe in the last 12 months itself says that the disease is deadly and very infectious.

We have no proper details about the after-effect of swine flu and it is better we take proper action and one of the main precaution should be to keep children out of the school.

In school, children use the common toilet. They use the same area to eat or share food and they use the same place to play and interact among the groups. The risk is very high even if one child is infected.

Although all parents want children to go to school, at the same time, the same parents want the children not to get infected by this deadly virus.

With all complications prevailing, it is better the schools are closed for some period of time till proper treatment is available.

I hope by the end of October vaccines come into the market and after that children can get the vaccine and then they can start going to the school.

So it is a matter of another one or two months. Let all the parents be patient until the problem is solved once and for all.
