The last time I was here in UP Diliman, on June 16, it was still swine-flu free, very much unlike many other educational institutions in the country.
The following day, on Wednesday, UP Diliman reportedly confirmed its first ever case of swine flu.
I was in mainland China when I first heard the term “swine flu.” CNN was reporting about the spread of the disease in Mexico.
The virus was in a faraway land.
Now, the disease is here, very close to home – close to where I live, work and study.
I’m not worried though.
The suspected cases are at two of the university’s dormitories, places that I have never been to.
Besides, unlike many other schools, UP Diliman is composed of several buildings, and has a land area that is almost three times the size of Monaco.
I’m not scared, that’s why I’m currently here at the UP College of Mass Communication (UP-CMC) Library, after doing some research at the UP Main Library.
Bye for now.
