Malaysian students going to Singapore schools should take extra precautions | Tech Malaysia

JOHOR BARU: Malaysian students commuting daily to schools in Singapore have been advised to take extra precautions and observe hygiene due to HMFD cases in Malaysia.

Deputy Education Minister Teo Nie Ching said although there were no reports of HMFD in Singapore, they should not take things for granted.

She also advised parents of children studying in Singapore to bring their children to doctors should they show symptoms of HMFD.

“The ministry is closely monitoring the situation in the country and so far no schools have been closed,” Teo told reporters during the 105th anniversary of SJKC Foon Yew 3 here on Sunday (July 29).

She said that only classes where students were infected with HMFD were closed between 10 and 14 days upon instructions from theĀ  Health Ministry.
