Is Closing Schools The Right Move Amid The Flu Outbreak?

After the government’s late-night decision to shut schools, Secretary for Health and Food York Chow Yat-ngok said: “There is no cause for alarm. This is not just a decision on public hygiene, but one concerning public sentiment.” (“All primary schools shut to curb flu outbreak”, March 13).

Sentiment? I look forward to such urgent action on pollution.
