Confirmed cases of A(N1H1) virus in the Philippines

There are now 21 cases of the dreaded Influenza A(N1H1) virus in the Philippines, according to the Department of Health (DOH). One foreign exchange student from the De La Salle University (DLSU) has been confirmed positive with the virus, causing the temporary shutdown of the campus. Another person was confirmed to be positive. This time, it’s from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The good news is that, 11 out of the 21 cases are now cured (Source). In fact, 5 of the 10 confirmed cases who came into contact with the Taiwanese mother and daughter have been discharged from the hospital already.

I hope this virus will be contained soon. Please be careful and boost your immune system. It’s flu season here in the country right now. Rainy season and all. Get a flu shot. It might not totally prevent the virus but then it might help your immune system. Ask your doctor about it. My sister and my brother are getting one next week. We will do everything to help our bodies fight the various diseases spreading around. You should, too.
