With more than 200 confirmed cases and growing at fast rate, it seems that the government may adopt a new policy in treating the H1N1 virus patients to reduce the pressure on medical systems in public hospitals, I heard that patients with mild condition may be treated at home instead.

This is a big shift from the high profile isolation of people at a hotel in Wanchai weeks ago when the first cases hit Hong Kong, but the government may have done right at that time, as any delay in the spread of the virus will buy us time for the medical system to get ready, as well as for the development of vaccines. 

The low mortality rate makes people feel easy on this virus, but I would still be very careful, it is good that there are many places which are not overcrowded and safe to go, yeah, tomorrow is Father's day.
