The virus is sustaining and still able to carry a near 1% fatality rate (higher than normal flu.) It is summer and yet it is still fatal?

Yeah, I'm not looking forward to autumn.

Jackson Township NJ elementary school student dies from H1N1 virus

July 1, 2009
Jackson, NJ – Today, the Jackson Township School District announced on their website that a child from the Lucy N. Holman Elementary School has died from the H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus. The age and grade of the child have not yet been released. The announcement was made earlier this morning on New Jersey 101.5 radio.

Three weeks ago, several students in Goetz Middle School, in the Jackson Township School District had been confirmed with the H1N1 virus which prompted the district to send a letter home to all parents stating the outbreak at the middle school was under control and warned parents of the syptoms of the H1N1 virus and precaustionary measures to take to avoid the spread of the virus.

At the June 16th Jackson Township Boar of Education meeting, there was no mention of the virus within the district to the public in attendance. Just moments ago, Lucy N. Holman principal Theresa Lictra’s autmotated phone message was sent to all Holman parents. The message told parents to visit the Lucy N. Holman website, but did not say why. The website in reference (www.jacksonsd.org) had information posted concerning the death and counseling options for students and parents.

Second death in Virginia associated with H1N1


A second death in Virginia associated with the H1N1 virus, also known as Swine Flu, was announced Wednesday.

According to State Health Commissioner Karen Remley, the patient was an adult male from the Arlington Health District.

"We offer our condolences to the family for their loss," Dr. Remley said. "The patient's preexisting medical conditions, which increased his risk of complications from influenza, does not lessen the impact of his death."

Here is the full news release:

SECOND DEATH IN VIRGINIA ASSOCIATED WITH H1N1 VIRUS

(RICHMOND, Va.)- A second death in Virginia associated with the novel influenza A (H1N1) virus, also called swine flu, was announced today by State Health Commissioner Karen Remley, M.D., MBA.

The patient was an adult male from the Arlington Health District. Although the cause of death has not been confirmed, the H1N1 virus appears to have been a factor. The patient had an underlying medical condition that put him at greater risk of complications from flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported 127 deaths in the nation caused by the new virus. There have been 332 deaths in laboratory-confirmed H1N1 cases worldwide.

"We offer our condolences to the family for their loss," Dr. Remley said. "The patient's preexisting medical conditions, which increased his risk of complications from influenza, does not lessen the impact of his death."

Unfortunately, since seasonal flu results in about 36,000 deaths nationwide and approximately 1,000 die in Virginia each year from influenza and pneumonia, deaths associated with the H1N1 virus are not unexpected, Dr. Remley added.

The Commissioner reminds all Virginians to be vigilant in guarding against the flu and its spread. Symptoms of influenza include fever, cough, sore throat, headache, body aches, chills or fatigue. People who experience these symptoms are asked to call their health care provider or local health department to discuss the possible need for treatment.

Some people are at higher risk for complications from the virus and are strongly encouraged to call their health care providers if they experience flulike symptoms. These include people with underlying chronic health conditions, pregnant women, the elderly and the very young.

Davie man, 58, becomes first swine flu death in Broward


DAVIE - A Davie man with a chronic heart problem has died of swine flu, becoming the first in Broward County and the third in Florida to succumb to the newly emerged H1N1 virus, medical officials said today.

Michael Waldfogel, 58, had gone to his doctor in mid-June complaining of typical flu symptoms and was sent home with flu medicine as is the normal procedure in such cases, said Dr. Joshua Perper, Broward's medical examiner.

Waldfogel was last seen on June 20 and was found dead in his home four days later, Perper said.

The medical examiner's office reviewed his death because of the unusual nature of the possible swine flu connection, and a state lab in Jacksonville confirmed Tuesday that the man had been infected, Perper said.

A woman who answered the phone at Waldfogel's home said the family would have no comment.

Swine flu panic spreads in Argentina

People in Argentina are starting to panic about the spread of swine flu, with at least nine more people dying from the virus overnight.

Just three weeks ago, swine flu was something that Argentines thought Mexicans and perhaps Americans had to worry about.

Officially 44 have now died from the virus, but unofficially, the tally may be as high as 150, giving Argentina a death rate higher than any other country.

Surgical masks appeared on the streets of downtown Buenos Aires today, but business still appears to be continuing as normal.

The two-week extension of the usual winter school holidays has many concerned that the government is not telling them the whole truth.

Two more Bostonians die of swine flu


The Boston Public Health Commission made the announcement today:

One Boston resident was a 52-year-old man who died at his home on June 26. Test results came back today indicating he was positive for H1N1 influenza. The second Boston resident was a 30-year-old man who was hospitalized on June 15 and died June 29. He is a probable case of H1N1 influenza; the confirmatory test for H1N1 is pending at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

That brings our swine-flu death toll to four. City and state health officials say swine-flu cases appear to be on the wane in Boston.

One victim was 32 and died June 22 at the Cornwall campus of St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital.

Flu cases rise to 28 at Wimbledon, but no evidence of swine flu

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS – 6 hours ago

LONDON — Flu-like symptoms are continuing to spread among Wimbledon staff, but organizers said no personnel has been diagnosed with swine flu.

All England Club spokesman Johnny Perkins said Wednesday that 28 staffers have been asked to stay home because of flu symptoms - up from four on Monday. However, he said that's out of 6,000 staffers working at Wimbledon during the championships, meaning the number of cases was not abnormally high.

None of the 28 have been diagnosed with swine flu, he said.

"We'd keep you informed . . . if there was any escalation above the normal sort of what you'd expect, but it would appear there isn't," Perkins said.

Organizers sent out a statement Monday asking all visitors to use good hygiene at the tournament, and to stay home if they developed any symptoms of illness. However, Perkins said there had been no extra precautions put in place to curb the outbreak.

"It's the same that it's always been. The precautions are in place beforehand, following any sort of government guidelines over here or anywhere around the world," he said.

Sarah Hames, an All England Club spokeswoman, said three of the four ball boys and girls who first reported flu symptoms have now returned to work.

"Once they're free of symptoms for 24 hours they are allowed to come back to work," Hames said. "And they haven't just come back to sit and watch, they're back working. . . . Washing hands is pretty much the singularly most important thing, and we obviously push that when it comes to the ball boys and girls, and that's why it hasn't escalated."

British newspaper Daily Mail reported Wednesday that three doubles players at the tournament had caught swine flu, but Perkins said organizers wouldn't comment.

"We can't, because we wouldn't necessarily know," Perkins said. "It's confidential between them and their medical staf

HANGZHOU, July 1 (Xinhua) -- An A/H1N1 flu patient died "accidentally" Wednesday in east China's Zhejiang Province, local health authorities said late Wednesday.

The 34-year-old woman was found dead at 7:35 a.m. in her ward lavatory at the No.1 People's Hospital of Xiaoshan District in Hangzhou, the provincial capital, according to the Hangzhou municipal health bureau.

The patient was recovering as her temperature had been normal for a week. She coughed occasionally, but other flu symptoms had disappeared.

She was admitted to the hospital on June 23.

Local police and health authorities are investigating.

This would be China's first death from the A/H1N1 flu if the investigation showed the woman died from the disease.

Liang Wannian, vice director of the emergency office under the Health Ministry, warned Monday that China is "very likely" to have its first death from the A/H1N1 influenza in the foreseeable future, as the number of the flu cases rises in the country.

As the total number of infected people increases, the chances of medical workers and high-risk groups, such as pregnant women and people with chronic diseases, being infected will rise, making serious cases of the A/H1N1 flu or even fatalities "extremely possible," Liang told reporters.

"The possibility of a wide spread of the virus in China in autumn and winter is also becoming more likely," he also warned.

The Chinese mainland confirmed 57 new cases of A/H1N1 influenza from 6 p.m. Tuesday to 6 p.m. Wednesday, with the total number amounting to 867, the Ministry of Health said.

Beijing confirmed 21 new cases, including seven students in a primary school, and the southern Guangdong Province registered 20.

Among the patients, 523 have been discharged from hospitals, 341 were being treated in hospitals and three patients were receiving medical care at their homes, the ministry said

Meanwhile, health authorities in the breakaway Turkish Cypriot north have confirmed six cases of the flu.

Cyprus' Health Minister Christos Patsalides maintained that there was no need for panic and called for caution.

"My message is, despite the increasing number of flu cases and the increasing burden on the island's health services, there is no need for unnecessary worry," he said after a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

The minister asked those with flu symptoms to see a doctor at once to ensure a prompt diagnosis as well as proper protection measures.
