Two more people have died from type-A (H1N1) influenza in the past week.

 

The Public Health Ministry, in its weekly online update, yesterday said one death was reported in Phitsanulok and the other in Chiang Rai.

 

The Bureau of Epidemiology, which is responsible for reporting the number of virus infection cases, yesterday also corrected the number of flu deaths reported in July and August, adding another three to the list.

The latest update, including the two new deaths, brings the A (H1N1) death toll in Thailand to 170 since the flu pandemic broke out in April.

 

The total number of patients who have tested positive for the virus has risen to 27,639, the bureau's report said.

 

From Sept 27 to Oct 10, there were confirmed flu cases reported in seven provinces: Sukhothai, Phayao, Roi Et, Chiang Mai, Rayong, Udon Thani and Chiang Rai.

Thanks for the update. Will check out the Tamiflu shots if I haven't left it too late.

If your worried about dying from H1N1 then let me suggest you dont take a taxi ride from Airport to Pattaya and instead walk. Far more people dying from Taxi rides and car accidents. Furthermore, tons more people die each year from regular Flu than from H1N1.

 

Lets keep it in perspective....

Tamiflu is taken orally. It is no vaccine. It prevents the H1N1 from replicating inside the body.

 

Better get your Hepatitis A/B or polio shots.

Given that so many Thais have HIV it makes sense that more of them will die from swine flu with their depleted immune systems

 

Nothing to worry about for a healthy farang tourist

all this H1N1 Panic - the flue has been around for hundreds if not thousands of years - it constantly changes and every year there are new straints - and thousands of people die from it every year - especially in rural areas of poorer countries - most of them are most likely never recorded as having died from the flu as they have no access to any form of health services..

 

What we can and should do is to get your annual flue shot - and yes also all the other vaccinations you can get such as Japanese E., Heb A/B, Rabies, and Tetanus.

 

Next and even more important wash your hands with soap at least three times a day - especially before meals - that is the no 1 most effective prevention. Of course you should also no hang around other people with the fiue and if you develop symptoms make sure you stay away from people.

 

Flu versus Cold - what's the f&*($%^ difference?

 

In general, the flu is worse than the common cold, and symptoms such as fever, body aches, extreme tiredness, and dry cough are more common and intense.

Colds are usually milder than the flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose.

Colds generally do not result in serious health problems, such as pneumonia, bacterial infections, or hospitalizations.

come again...

I agree totally

170 Deaths from 27k plus infections, way less than 1%
