More than 100,000 people called in sick last Friday morning with symptoms varying from “headache” to “runny nose” and “severely infectious cough”. More are still expected to file in sick in the upcoming weeks.

Due to the severity of this unidentifiable disease, the Ministry of Health (MOH), has declared a health warning and recommends that people avoid going to work until the epidemic subsides.

“We have been unable to isolate the virus causing this disease but we do know that it affects mostly males,” said MOH spokesperson Tak Kiu, who also declared MC and was speaking to New Nation over the phone.

According to MOH data, the last epidemic of this proportion occurred in 2012 and lasted for a month, peaking on the 29th and 30th day. As such, it is likely that there will be an economic paralysis on the 12th and 13th of July when two out of five working adults will call in sick.

If you have nothing better to do while on MC, go bet on the world cup 2014. Lose your daiji hor.
