UTM Graduands Told To Declare Health During Convocation

JOHOR BAHARU, Aug 12 (Bernama) -- Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) graduands attending the university's 43rd convocation this weekend have been told to fill up a health declaration from stating that they are free of Influenza A(H1N1).

UTM's student health centre director Dr Ismail Ahmad said Wednesday, the move was one of the measures taken by the university to prevent the pandemic.

Graduands who were feverish, coughing or sneezing would be required to undergo A(H1N1) screening and would be given medications and face masks, he said in a statement.

The five-day convocation from Saturday would involve 5,693 graduands. -- BERNAMA
