“As of April 2009, there are more than 12,000 confirmed cases of Influenza A H1N1 viral infections from 43 countries with 86 mortalities.” – World Health Organization.
We were enjoying our hearty lunch at home today when the news about the second confirmed case of swine flu in the Philippines was reported via presscon conducted by Department of Health Secretary Duque himself.
Dr. Duque III said that the first case in the Philippines was of a 10-year-old girl who has recovered from the viral infection, quite OK now and only nursing a sore throat. It was good news that the dreaded disease wasn’t transmitted to the girl’s mother or to her household; no other victims were noted.
The second case of a 50-year-old Pinay who came from Chicago last May 20 was also noted to seek medical assistance when she developed fever and cough, was managed properly and is currently on recuperation and still under close monitoring.
