As at todate, 32 dead, 203 new cases reported within last 24 hours, of which 15 were being treated inintensive care units and 67 patients are in isolation wards. A total of 1,982 cases have been confirmed and mostly were cured.

Anti-viral treatment has now been proven to be effective if the medicine was given to the affected people within 48 hours of getting the sickness.

If you have the following signs such as difficulty in breathing, fever, continuous chest pains, cough and diarrhea, please be aware.

Who are considered the high-risk groups of people?
* children who are below five years
* senior citizens 65 years and above
* children and youths under 19 who are on aspirin medication
* pregnant women
* people suffering from asthma, chronic lung disease, organ failure, cardiovascular, liver and blood system diseases
* diabetics
* obese people
* those with a low immunity

Drink more water and reduce unhealthy food!!

Lessen your exposure to the general public whenever possible.

Everyone must be responsible and take care to avoid the virus and not help in spreading it. It's too bad that malaysians on the whole are still having the couldn't care less attitude.

foong - agree with u on that lackadaisical attitude of those people infected with it. some still went out to the public enjoying their one week so-called quarantine

We've been very lucky in Texas so far... it is spreading but not many deaths have been reported. I worry that the fall weather will bring greater exposure though.
