Philippine A(h1n1) case jumps to 46

As I have written yesterday, there were 39 new influenza a(h1n1) cases in the Philippines. From todays’ news the confirmed carrier of the disease jumps to 46. This includes students from De La Salle University-Taft in Manila, bringing the total La Salle students total to 7. And another from the Far Eastern University.

Luckily, the Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education had agreed to formally open Academic year 09-10 on June 15, 2009, a week later than scheduled.

The Secretary of the Department of Health had said, that tracing the people that the carriers had contact is a little bit difficult. but, he also said that the cases of swine flu in the Philippines is miraculously mild. Unlike to other big countries where the disease is also rampant.

Tracing the contacted person by those carriers of the disease is not that effective right now, Health Secretary Duque said that it is better to medicate then all the patients that would rise as influenza a(h1n1) victim.

The World Health Organization confirmed that the disease had been spread to 73 countries, with 25,288 infected persons, and the saddest part is that 139 persons had died due to this virus.

I hope that this virus can now be busted. Because we know that with today’s economic problem, getting medication is a lot more difficult to do.

Hope to hear good news after a few days.
