The Health Ministry should announce any new case of swine flu, Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr. Bader Al-Essa announced yesterday.
Essa told KUNA that the Health Ministry should be the designated body that should announce any new cases of swine flu because some cases are discovered in health centers and hospitals than in schools.
He added that a number of parents go to health centers without notifying schools; hence, the Ministry of Education has inac- curate statistics on the number of children that catch the flu. On Thursday, four cases of swine flu were revealed in a number of public schools in Hawali and Adailiya.
“Parents are the ones who notified schools about these cases so necessary precautions could go underway,” he added.
