Flu causes large number of students to ask for leave

EVERY December and January is the high season for outbreaks of flu in Shenzhen. More students have taken sick leave recently, according to several teachers working at schools in Shenzhen.

A teacher, surnamed Deng, in Bao’an District, told the Shenzhen Daily that each class in her school has nearly 10 students absent due to flu each day. “The situation in December was even worse than now, and some classes have even more than 20 students absent,” said Deng, who was also infected with the flu and had been on sick leave for the last two weeks.

Yang is an English teacher in Longgang District. She said that younger students are more vulnerable to the flu. “The flu since December has been more severe than previous years, and some of my students have suffered from repeated fevers after they had recovered and returned to school,” said Yang.

It is nearly the end of the semester and the students are about to take their final exams. However, a lot of students are still taking sick leave, said Yang.

One teacher, who refused to be named, from a primary school in Longhua District, said yesterday that there are classes suspended at the school because a large proportion of students are infected with flu.

The number of children seeing doctors at Shenzhen Children’s Hospital has also soared during these two months, said a spokesperson from the hospital. However, since the hospital does not continuously monitor the sick children, it is hard to tell if the kids are suffering from the flu, but most of the children do have a fever.

“There are many students, and even me, who are still coughing in the class,” said Deng. The teacher said that schools have been taking measures to prevent more students from getting the flu, such as sterilizing classrooms and canteen utensils after use.

Teachers at Deng’s school have also been required to send messages to the parents of each student to remind them to take preventive measures. Students who have recovered from the flu shall not attend school until 48 hours after recovery, said Deng.
