Dr Chan advises public to put off events that pull crowds to confined spaces
KUCHING: Organisers of events that draw large number of people to confined spaces were yesterday urged to postpone their events for the time being due to an increase in Influenza A (H1N1) cases.
“To minimise the risk (of spreading the flu) as much as possible, please defer big events,” Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan told a press conference here.
However, Dr Chan, who is the State Disaster Relief Committee chairman, said the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) scheduled this weekend would go on as scheduled.
“We decided to hold it and the Health Department is deploying staff from the other divisions to have added precautions imposed during the Rainforest (RWMF).
“We will provide festival goers with face masks, clinic facilities and thermal scanner at the venue,” he said.
Last week, Dr Chan said public gatherings and functions in the state could be banned by the government if there was a case of local transmission of H1N1.
He said the ban would be necessary to contain the spread of the disease.

Hey old man, to fuck or not to fuck?
Mastering the art of ‘talking using your backside’ is a must for anyone who inspires to be a politician like George Chan. So, learn from the best!
If you think partying with one hand holding your drink, face covered with mask, thermal thermometer stuck in your ass is fun, then Rainforest World Music Festival 2009 is definitely something to look for this weekend! (July 10 – 12). See you there!
I can’t wait to see photos and videos of the mask wearing crowd dancing to the tune. What an orgy fest!
