AH1N1 in Ateneo de Davao

So it's finally happened: Ateneo de Davao University has now reported cases of AH1N1.

I hadn't planned on writing about this because I didn't want to add to the confusion and, er, panic, but since the story already came out in the local news....

I found out about it when I dropped by the Computer Science Division faculty room. They were discussing the incident over lunch. Apparently, two of the recently infected attend the class of one of the teachers I was with. ("Oh, no! Stay away from me!" I kidded.)

Apparently, that wasn't all. One entire class was asked to quarantine themselves for ten days, and this class just happened to have occupied one of the computer labs on our floor (though fortunately not on the same wing where I hover.)

Ten days. That should be enough time to see if the virus really took root. Hmmm, I think I'll go ask how the students how they're doing when I bump into them at the mall.


  1. waaaa...malapit pa naman office namin dito...

  2. i like the last sentence...true, true.
