    It certainly feels good to hear the government announcing that Korea is free from the Middle East respiratory syndrome outbreak that had kept the whole nation fretting for two months. Needless to say, it would have been better had authorities dealt with the contagious disease promptly in its initial stage, but it still is fortunate that we could stop the deadly virus after minimising its impact.

  • A Blast From The Past - Sweet and Sour: My Visit To China

    Modern Life Is Rubbish

    This article was originally published in Contact magazine in October 2009 Think back to the news reports in July.

  • Why is the H1N1 virus sometimes called “Swine Flu”?

    Li
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:41 pm
    The H1N1 flu virus is a variant of influenza A. In 2009 a new variant of the H1N1 virus emerged in the U.S. that was unlike any H1N1 virus circulating at the time, containing genes closely related to H1N1 viruses in pigs.

    2 Jul 2015 | 4:51 am
    WASHINGTON (AP) — One vaccine used in Europe during the 2009 swine flu pandemic was linked to rare cases of a baffling side effect – the sleep disorder narcolepsy. Now new research offers a clue to what happened. The vaccine Pandemrix never was used in the United States, and was pulled off the market abroad, but reports of narcolepsy in Finland and several other countries sparked questions globally about flu shot safety.
