TV programme on the flu to be aired this Sunday


By Pongphon Sarnsamak



In a bid to allay public fear about the typeA(H1N1) influenza, epidemiologists from the Public Health Ministry, Chulalongkorn Hospital and Siriraj Hospital will explain everything about this new disease live on TV this Sunday.



Viewers can phone in to ask questions during the broadcast.


Public Health Minister Witthaya Kaewparadai said Tuesday the programme about the new influenza would air on the National Broadcasting Services of Thailand (NBT) between 8.30pm and 10pm on June 21.


"This will be the first live broadcast to disseminate information and answer all questions about typeA (H1N1) influenza infection prevention," he said.


The move comes after the ministry has evidence the new flu virus is now active across the country.


Witthaya yesterday confirmed that his ministry would give an update about typeA (H1N1) influenza on a daily basis, overriding a statement from the ministry earlier in the week that the new cases would no longer be announced at a press conference.


"Hospitals will report to us and we will make an announcement every day," the public health minister said.
