Parliament reschedules sit-down with flu task force

The parliamentary committee on Wednesday re-scheduled the sit-down with relevant health officials over the spread of the H1N1 virus in the Maldives.

The government oversight committee had summoned the government task force last week to seek information on the steps taken by the government to curb the spread of the flu.

However, the sit-down was postponed after the task force had requested a later date as most members found it difficult to attend.

The committee had now rescheduled the sit-down at 8pm Wednesday.

The most recent statistics have shown that 222 people have been found positive for H1N1 while it has claimed the life of six people thus far.
