Flu fears close schools in Hong Kong

Hong Kong has closed all kindergartens and junior schools through the Easter holiday as a precautionary measure due to fears of the spread of influenza, which has already claimed the lived of three children. While closed, the schools will be disinfected (which won't help much when sick kids come back and re-spread around their germs).
