Swine Flu Problem
Swine flu is a problem. It is basically regular influenza, but its causing havoc in our school system. So many children are out of school sick because they have contracted the illness. One particular school in Illinois has over 40 percent of its students out due to the swine flu. This isn't the only school with attendence issues. Even our own Judge Memorial has so many kids not in class. Something needs to be done before this gets worse. Its so hard to make up homework when your gone for a week, we need to find someway to stop the source of this problem. Someone or something needs to come up with a solution to the swine flu or kids all across America will be losing more and more valuable learning time.
There has been ongoing surveillance of the viruses in the community, and as of the report of last week, all of the circulating viruses up to 99% of them have been the H1N1 influenza virus, with a small amount being the parainfluenza viruses which are less than a percent http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/64999997.html
