JOHOR BAHRU, Jan 7 (Bernama) -- The reported cases of influenza infection in Johor are still under control and thus far there are no signs of an outbreak, says state health director Dr Aman Rabu.

However, he said, monitoring was still ongoing to ensure that the situation remained under control.

“Thus far there are no signs of an outbreak. There are different types of influenza – A, B and C – but we are not focusing on any specific influenza as our monitoring is comprehensive as long as it involves respiratory problems and colds,” he told reporters here today.

He said this in light of the latest development pertaining to influenza case in Johor.

Dr Aman was met after conducting the No Smoking enforcement operations at several eateries in Bandar Baru Uda, here, which was also attended by state Health, Culture and Heritage Committee chairman Mohd Khuzzan Abu Bakar.
