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.

Costa Rican president sick with swine flu

Costa Rican President Oscar Arias has been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus, commonly known as the swine flu, the government said in a televised statement on Tuesday.

Arias fell ill on Sunday, complaining of a sore throat and temperature, Presidential Minister Rodrigo Arias said.

A doctor’s visit on Tuesday revealed that the president had the H1N1 virus, cases of which had been reported earlier in the Costa Rican capital of San Jose.

The president’s overall health was good, but following his doctor’s advice, he will rest at his home until Sunday, Rodrigo Arias said. The president is expected to return to work on Monday, the minister said.

As of Friday, there were 718 confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus in Costa Rica, and the virus has been blamed for 27 deaths, according to a report by the country’s ministry of health.

A majority of the confirmed cases — 480 — were in San Jose. Arias, 67, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987 for helping bring an end to Central America’s civil wars.

More recently, he acted as mediator between two feuding sides claiming the leadership of Honduras.

Thai capital to close 435 schools to halt H1N1 spread

BANGKOK – july 14 – The Thai capital will close 435 schools for five days to prevent the spread of the H1N1 flu virus, a senior official said on Tuesday.

Thailand has reported 4,057 cases of H1N1, commonly known as swine flu, since mid-May and 24 deaths from the virus, 10 of them people from Bangkok.

“We will conduct a thorough cleaning of the schools during the closure to prevent further outbreaks here,” Ponksak Semsan, permanent secretary-general of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, said in a statement, announcing the closure from Wednesday.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Monday that the H1N1 virus was “unstoppable” and gave drug makers full go-ahead to manufacture vaccines.

The WHO raised the global flu alert to the highest level on June 11, declaring a pandemic was under way from the H1N1 strain.

Although the new disease has so far caused only mild symptoms in most patients, more than 400 people have died globally and experts fear the death toll could surge without a widespread immunisation programme.

Thailand’s government agreed during a cabinet meeting on Tuesday to place an order for two million doses of a vaccine for H1N1, with delivery expected by December.
