Announcement of Response to the Confirmed Case of
New H1N1 Influenza Infection in Kyushu University

  One Kyushu University student belonging to the Hakozaki campus was confirmed to be infected with the new H1N1 strain of influenza on July 28. The student has only minor symptoms and is being treated at home.
  The university is currently issuing instructions to concerned departments, and gathering information to help prevent the spread of infection.
  Although class cancellations have not been instituted so far, such a decision remains a possibility, depending on the prevalence of infection within the campuses. Please pay regular attention to the latest information regarding the new influenza.
  Students, faculty and staff are requested to take daily preventative measures that include frequently gargling, washing hands and wearing protective masks.


1. Measures to Take When You Notice Symptoms of Influenza
  If students, faculty, or staff members display any symptoms of influenza such as fever and cough, immediately consult a medical institution in your community after inquiring by telephone when and how to receive an examination. Those who are not sure which hospital they should go to should inquire at the New Influenza Telephone Consultation Desk in a nearby public health center or other administrative agency, and then visit the designated hospital.
  To avoid spreading infection, please wear a mask while at the hospital.
  If students, faculty, staff members, or those who have been in close contact with them, including their family members, are suspected of being positive for the new influenza virus after a medical examination, they are required to report this result to the faculty to which they belong.


2. General Preventative Measures
As above, we once again urge you to take preventative measures, which include avoiding crowds, wearing a mask when you go outside, and frequently gargling and washing hands. If you notice any flu-like symptoms, such as chills, shivering, fever or cough, please follow the instructions described above (1. Measures to Take When You Notice Symptoms of Influenza).
  If you notice any changes in your physical condition, please keep records of your body temperature and health condition for seven days by filling out the Health Check Sheet.
