I find that the flu jab works wonders for me. Pay around $20-30, and save the doctors' fee and down days. But its probably too late for this current strain of viruses going around.

New tuberculosis cases in Singapore on the rise

http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNew ... 31355.html

The number of new cases of tuberculosis (TB) is on the rise among Singaporeans and foreigners.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) was alerted to 2,791 new cases last year, a figure 10.9 per cent higher than the 2,517 in 2009.

Even among residents alone, that is, citizens and permanent residents, the rise is palpable: 795 new cases surfaced between January and June this year.



New TB cases
The year's final tally is thus expected to exceed last year's total of 1,478 cases among residents. Even after factoring in population growth, the increase is also apparent: Last year, TB affected 39.2 individuals for every 100,000 residents here; the year before, it was 38.6 for every 100,000.

I believe the weather plays a part-there is rain and sun within an hour and sometimes both at the same time :slapshead: Think our body cannot take the change that fast too.
