Mumps

I received a call from my friend, Iswadi during lunch. He informed me that one of our close friends and also ex classmate had been admitted to the hospital for mumps. Our friend, Zul is an executive in CIMB.

The normal thing to do would be to pay Zul a visit at the hospital but Iswadi mentioned that Zul’s doctor advised against it as mumps is comtagious. To confirm the issue, I called my brother who is a medical doctor & he agreed to the motion. Thus, we decided it be best to just keep in touch through the phone.

One major symptoms of mumps is swelling of the salivial glands. Mumps can spread through saliva so, sharing of cups or being in the same room with a victim of mumps (he coulds cough or sneeze) without taking proper precautions could result in you being infected.
