MAE HONG SON, Oct 1 – Over 100 refugees with symptoms of common flu -- influenza -- are receiving inpatient medical treatment in the nursing sections of two refugee camps in the northern province of Mae Hong Son.

The two camps were closed Wednesday for 15 days as a quarantine measure to present infections from spreading.
