UNTIL JULY 9 TO PREVENT SPREAD
BY CARLA GOMEZ
The University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos yesterday afternoon sent its students at all levels home after 168 had flu-like symptoms, as a precautionary measure against its further spread, Carlos Legaspi, UNO-R director of student affairs, said.
The most number of cases were in the high school level, although elementary pupils and college students were also hit, he said.
The alarming number of flu-like cases and the rapid increase prompted school authorities to send students home and to suspend classes until July 9, he said.
