Monash University Engineering Ball

Read this: Disease alert for
[The Age]

It seems that two people who went to the Engineering Ball last week got meningococcal disease
which is a form of meningitis [WebMD]. It’s curious
that meningitis is so prevalent in Australia and NZ but I’ve hardly ever heard about it in
Malaysia. It seems that all outdoor hot springs here have warnings not to submerse your head
into the water to avoid getting meningitis. Anyway if you’re too lazy to click on the WebMD
link, meningitis is an infection of the brain which can be fatal. Apparently the bacterial form
is more dangerous than the viral one.
