All kindergartens and elementary schools are closed.

All kindergartens and elementary schools were closed for quarantine in Hong Kong to curb the recent outbreak of flu. Easter vacations started ahead of schedule and will continue for two weeks, China News reports.

Sanitary services are alarmed by three deaths of children in the age of 2, 3, and 7 years who had symptoms of flu. Doctors can’t explain the exact reason of their death and convened a special commission for investigation.

The doctors are trying to find out weather the lethal cases relate to bird flu or Sars that broke out in Hong Kong in 2003 and killed 299 people.
