Baguio daycare suspends courses because of hand, foot and mouth illness


The Health Services Office suggested a 10-day suspension of courses in a daycare center after three of its students were diagnosed with hand, foot, and mouth disease or HFMD.

The suspension of courses at the San Roque Daycare Center started on Thursday.

The suggestion is to wash the facility for 10 days and to prevent contact and spreading the disease among kids.

HFMD is a prevalent viral disease that generally impacts babies and kids.

Typical symptoms include fever, sores of the mouth and skin rash.

To prevent the spread of the disease, the public is advised to wash hands properly and regularly and avoid close contact with people who have HFMD, and disinfect frequently.
