H1N1 Flu infection on the rise in Vietnam

According to the Center for Preventive Medicine in the northern province of Lao Cai, five of the patients who contracted A/H1N1 Flu virus in Quang Kim Commune in Bat Xat District are showing positive signs of recovery after receiving treatment at the General Hospital.

These patients had been hospitalized after complaints of fever, cough, and respiratory problems. Test results showed positive for H1N1 virus.

Following this, health authorities then rushed to their neighborhood to take more samples for testing as well as advised local medical workers to tighten supervision on those who had directly come into contact with the patients.
