    Hong Kong is set to order all primary and lower-level schools to close for two weeks after confirming that a cluster of influenza cases at St Paul's Convent School involves the swine flu virus.

    The order, to be effective from tomorrow,is expected to be announced by Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen shortly.

    The move to shut all primary schools, kindergartens and nurseries came after Centre for Health Protection confirmed that the St Paul cluster of cases are swine flu infections and raise the number of cases to 12 from nine previously.

    Yes, just saw the news flash. Sad way for the children to end the term and for those of us staying in HK over summer, another two weeks of holidays to occupy the kids! Yikes.

    All the best. I suspect that means all ballet, swimming etc classes too will take a break! But I am here in Melbourne where we have soooo many cases and I think it is a good move!

    i'm closing... not that any parents would bring their children anyway!

    i'm not all about the money, though...even though i'll not be getting any but i'll still be paying my staff...it's just me that is/will be without income.
