HFM Disease

The Hand, Foot and Mouth disease seems to be at a alarming state currently in Sarawak. For the last 3 days, there were 601 new cases being reported.

Parents are advised to follow all medical advice given and to stop bringing their children to kindergartens.

But if you think Peninsular Malaysia is free from the disease, think again. I personally know a child (Mami's relative) in Malacca who was down with the disease last week. But the child has recovered and discharged. Although I am not sure how's the status in Peninsular Malaysia or whether the disease is under-control here, but I am not taking any risk. So no shopping, playground or public areas for Yiyi for the next few weeks.

And remember to ensure your child is always clean.
