Dad doesn’t seems happy with me going back to Malaysia this Easter break.
1. The Iraq war may erupt any moment now. The war may disrupt your flight from KL to Man. And you are heading to Man for your final exam.
Your final exam should be your top priority, and you should avoid any thing that may jeopadise the exam.
2. There is now a pneumonia epidemic in the Fare East, and the government has issued a travel warning. Need to monitor the situation closely.
It will be better if you stay put until your final exam is over.
It seems that the pneumonia epidemic has spread to UK. The newspaper reported that they found someone traveling from HK transiting from Amsterdam had a ‘mysterious disease’. However, it wasn’t revealed what disease was. So far, there have been 9 reported cases of death. Furthermore, the epidemic has spread to South East Asia. Vietnam seems to be the worst with few hundred victims and 1 death. Japan has sent in their medical team to help out.
On Tuesday, the number of suspected cases in Hong Kong rose to 123, from 95 on Monday. Singapore suspects 23 people have the illness, while Vietnam counts nearly 60.
Australia is examining its first suspected case among 20 patients who returned from trips to Asia.
Other countries reporting suspected cases are China, Canada, the Philippines, Thailand, Germany and the United States.
