Dr Vickneshwaran Muthu, Disease Control Division, Ministry of Health Malaysia
Two weeks ago, a number of students and teachers of Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman in Ipoh came down with a mysterious bug that turned out to be the H1N1 flu.

In today’s show, we revisit how influenza spreads and how something seemingly harmless can turn deadly.
