8 cases from 2 clusters of local transmission

It has finally happened. 2 clusters of local transmission have been identified as of today. They are from:
  • Riverlife Church (5 students)
  • NUS (3 students)

As of today, Singapore has a total of 126 confirmed cases. Once it starts to hit students, I think it's a matter of time before it spreads widely. The only consolation is that the H1N1 flu seems to be no different in severity than the common flu.

However, since there is evidence of local transmission, and it happened in a school no less, I think it's a matter of time before MOH raises the alert back to Orange. Another point to note is that one of the latest cases seem to have came from Malaysia (Tioman). That's pretty near us.

It's seems like that's not the first case. On Jun 10, there was already a tourist that got infected at Tioman.
