Melaka: The result of laboratory tests on two school students suspected to be infected with Influenza A virus (H1N1) is expected to be known in one or two days.

State Exco for Education, Higher Education, Science and Technology, Green Technology and Innovation, Datuk Md Yunus Husin said the two students show positive signs and are quarantined at home.

"We have given vaccination to all the students of the school. Only two students are suspected to be infected with H1N1," he told reporters Thursday.

Md Yunus said no new H1N1 cases have been reported and urged the parents to send their children to school as usual.

Earlier, he launched the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme for the installation of thermal insulation at SMK Air Molek.

On Feb 10, a newspaper reported that two year one students of SK Tengkera 2 were suspected of being infected with H1N1 after suffering from cough and fever. – Bernama
