Students to Undergo Daily Fever Checkups

August 27, 2009

Korea’s education authorities, scrambling to prevent the further spread of the A(H1N1) flu virus ahead of the fall semester, announced yesterday that schools will have to conduct mandatory fever checkups daily.

Editors Note: As a teacher working in a Korean public school at the moment, I am interested in finding out HOW the schools will be testing every student every morning.  I doubt the schools currently have the facilities or manpower to do this.  I hope that the government supplies them quickly with the equipment needed to test the hundreds of students every day.
