Indonesia reports first death from H1N1 flu

Indonesia has confirmed its first death linked to the H1N1 flu virus after a 6-year-old girl suffering from severe pneumonia died in Jakarta, the health ministry said.

The girl was admitted to hospital with fever, coughs and respiratory problems, the ministry said on its website.

The World Health Organisation has confirmed 800 deaths globally from the H1N1 virus, which has spread to 160 countries.

But health experts say that figure does not reflect the true number of people killed by the virus. Flu can kill people in various ways, including by causing pneumonia, heart attack, stroke or multiple organ failure.

Indonesia has confirmed 343 people have been infected with the H1N1 flu strain as of July 24.

Metro 2033: Fear The Future

[media id=132 width=500 height=400]

It’s a little known fact that Russian intelligence considered the likelihood of a nuclear strike against them so high that they ordered Moscow’s metro system to be dug deep enough to act as a makeshift fallout shelter. With a detail like that to draw inspiration from it’s hardly surprising that a book and now a videogame have been written to exploit it.

Dimitry Glukhovsky, author of Metro 2033 and consultant onhttp://news.bf-1.com/wp-admin/post-new.php the eponymous game, has penned a story which takes place after nuclear war has devastated the planet, with the only survivors sealed inside Moscow’s reinforced metro system. Unfortunately for them, as is often the case, they are not alone and soon find themselves in a struggle for their very existence against a variety of horrors.

An atmospheric and claustrophobic first-person shooter, Metro 2033 is looking good from the preview build we’ve played through, with lighting and shadows used to particularly eerie effect.

Expect the title to land on store shelves on 19 March, for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, for now check out the latest video for a sneak peak of the game in action.
