Haemolytic Streptococcus

The flu season is in full swing in Japan.
A few students of mine actually got the flu and they were absent from my lessons last week. According to the news, it'll come to a peak in the next two weeks. We can see people wearing masks here and there.

Last Friday, my son had a slight fever, so he was absent from school. At the time, I was worried that he might have got the flu. Fortunately, his fever subsided and he didn't have any flu-like symptoms. As such, I was relieved and thought that he would be fine.
The next day, however, he got a high fever. I believed that he had caught the flu... As I had my lessons as usual on that day, I asked my hubby to take him to our family doctor. Surprisingly, there had been a waiting list of 75 when they arrived there at 9:00! It took about two hours to see the doctor! Oh, my.....

He was diagnosed with not the flu but haemolytic streptococcus. It was his second time to come down with it....
Still having an interemittent fever, he was kept home from school today as a precaution.
I hope that the antibiotics will work soon.


Hi, my friend! What have you been doing?

Well, yes, that's right. But, it's a medical word, so we should say strep throat instead of the above word. ^^;

He's fine although he has a cough.

Take care of yourself, too!

Is it so-called 溶連菌感染症? How is he now?
I didn't know this tongue twister-like word...
Please take care not to catch the flu.
Some students come to our English school even when they are diagnosed with the flu (-_-;)
Stay at home please!!
