Urgent message from the president of Vinh University related to H1N1 Flu

 On July 28, 2009, the president of Vinh University, Assoc.Prof.Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Hoi, once again alerted Vinh University’s staff and students the speed of H1N1 Flu propagation and made an appeal for disease prevention and health protection at the circular letter No 1676/ ĐHV-CTCTHSSV-YT. According to this circular letter, he asked staff and students of Vinh University to be vigilant with H1N1 Flu and to carry out some basic measures proposed by competent medical organs.

The best protection measures for H1N1 are the SAME as for any influenza virus:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water frequently and thoroughly. You may also use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth without washing your hands first.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough and sneeze by using your sleeve, a tissue, or a mask.
  • Avoid or reduce the time spent in close contact with people who appear unwell and/or have a fever and cough.
  • Reduce the time spent in crowded settings if possible.
  • Keep a distance of at least 1 meter between you and other persons especially if they have influenza-like symptoms.
  • Improve airflow in your living space by opening windows.
  • Practice good health habits including getting adequate sleep, eating nutritious food, and keeping physically active.
  • STAY HOME IF YOU HAVE A FEVER, COUGH and/or SORE THROAT 

Relevant divisions at Vinh University are called to carry out urgent activities to prevent and control this dangerous pandemic (H1N1).

 

When having A (H1N1) flu symptoms, you have to call H1N1 Flu Control and Prevention division at  038 385 57 65 or doctor Tan at  0912 92 35 15.
