Declared interests Directorate of Health and Population Valley Emergency in various centers hospital municipalities region following reports of transmission of a dangerous virus led to the death of a number of patients in hospital central sources say new because Fros swine flu, which moves very rapidly and threatens to infants and women, in particular for HIV to have.


                وأوضحت مصادر الجديد أن عدد الوفيات بسبب أنفلونزا الخنازير مقدر بتسعة وفيات ونحو 20 حالة إصابة خطيرة منهم من وضع بداخل أجنحة خاصة خوفا من نقل العدوى وأيضا هنالك من تم نقلهم لمصلحة الأمراض المعدية خوفا من اتساع رقعة المرض لباقي المرضى الآخرين. And new sources pointed out that the number of deaths due to swine flu is destined to nine deaths and about 20 cases of serious injury put them inside the special wards for fear of infection and also there were transferred for the benefit of infectious diseases for fear of the expansion of the disease to the rest of the other patients.

                وأجبرت مديرية الصحة جميع الأطباء والممرضين على إرتداء الألبسة الواقية خوفا من انتقال العدوى لهم أو نقلها لبعض المرضى الماكثين في المستشفيات، كما سارع بعض أهالي المرضى لأخذ مرضاهم من المستشفى خوفا من العدوى وتنقل الكثير من أهالي المرضى فور سماعهم للخبر للمستشفى للاطمئنان عن مرضاهم. And forced the Department of Health all doctors and nurses to wear protective clothing for fear of contagion them or move them to some patients الماكثين in hospitals, also rushed some people sick to take their patients from the hospital for fear of infection and the movement of a lot of people sick soon as they heard the news of the hospital to check on their patients.

                وقد أخذت مديرية الصحة عينات من المصابين وتمّ نقلها على جناح السرعة لمعهد باستور لتحليلها ومعرفة الدواعي الحقيقية لهذا الفيروس الخطير، وذكرت مصادر الجديد أيضا أن فرقة خاصة تابعة للدرك الوطني من الناحية العسكرية الرابعة تعتزم التنقل للمستشفى المركزي بقصد معاينة الحالات وأخذ إجراءات إستعجالية من قبل السلطات الوصية. Having taken the Directorate of Health samples from patients were transferred quickly to the Pasteur Institute to analyze and find out reasons true for this dangerous virus, sources said New also a special squad belonging to the National Gendarmerie in terms of the fourth military plans to move to the central hospital in order preview cases and take action urgency by the authorities Commandment .

                وتحدث هذه التطورات بعدما أصبح الأنفلونزا حديث الساعة بولاية الوادي هذه الأيام والذي فرض حالة من الطوارئ على مستوى المستشفى المركزي بن عمر الجيلاني ومستشفى البشير بن ناصر في ظل تكتم غريب خيم على مديرية الصحة عقب تسجيل حالة الوفاة السادسة وارتفاعها إلى ثمانية عن أعراض مشابهة لأعراض أنفلونزا الخنازير حسب مصادر الجديد، هذا المرض هو عبارة عن مرض تنفسي يصيب الخنازير، يسببه فيروس أنفلونزا من نوع "I" ويمكن أن ينتشر بسرعة، ويمكن أيضا أن ينتقل إلى الإنسان خاصة عند الاتصال المباشر مع الحيوانات المصابة به وأعراضه تتمثل في قيء وإسهال، ويعتبر المصاب بالفيروس معديا طوال بقاء الأعراض لديه وكذلك لمدة أسبوع بعدها، ولكن الأطفال والمراهقين قد ينقلون العدوى لفترة أطول.

                وفي زيارة قامت بها الجديد لمستشفى البشير بن ناصر وجدنا أنه يفتقد إلى أدنى الضروريات الصحية والبيئية المفروض تواجدها في هذه المؤسسة الإستشفائية أين أكد لنا بعض المرضى أن الوضع مزري ومتردي صار يعرفه هذا المرفق الصحي، قد يهيأ المناخ المناسب لانتشار العدوى من هذا المرض الفتاك نظرا لغياب كل شروط النظافة والرقابة، في الوقت الذي طلبنا فيه توضيحا عن وجود حالات تعاني من أعراض غريبة أو حالات وفاة سجلت بالمستشفى جراء تأثرها بمرض غريب قد تتشابه مع أنفلونزا الخنازير إلا أننا قوبلنا بالرفض لأسباب إدارية على حد قولهم لنجد أنفسنا كإعلاميين وسط زحمة من المصادر غير المؤكدة عن الفيروس، وهو ما دفع بشريحة واسعة من المواطنين لمطالبة جميع السلطات المعنية وعلى رأسها مديرية الصحة التي تعد المسؤول الأول بالتحرك العاجل للكشف عن مصداقية انتشار هذا المرض وذلك من أجل أخذ الحيطة والحذر حسب تعبيرهم. In a visit to the new hospital Bashir bin Nasser and found that it lacks minimum necessities of health and environmental imposed its presence in this institution hospital where assured us some patients that the situation مزري and worsening became known that the health facility, has a handsome environment for the spread of infection from the deadly disease in the absence of Each hygiene and control, at which time we asked the explanation for the existence of cases suffering from symptoms of strange or deaths recorded in hospital as a result affected by disease Ghraib may resemble with swine flu but we we received rejected for administrative reasons, they say to find ourselves Kaalamyin Central Traffic sources uncertain virus, which prompted the chip and a wide range of citizens to demand that all the relevant authorities and the head of the Directorate of Health, which is primarily responsible for urgent action to detect the credibility of the spread of this disease in order to take caution by expressing.

                من جانب آخر كشف النائب البرلماني داسي موساوي في اتصال هاتفي بالجديد أنه يتابع ملف أنفلونزا الخنازير متحدثا عن خيوط أولية عن الفيروس سيتم كشفها لاحقا ،ونقل النائب داسي بأنه سينسق مع باقي زملاءه بغية مسائلة الحكومة ممثلة في وزيرها الأول عن وضعية الصحة بالجنوب وبوادي سوف تحديدا لتجنيب السكان مثل هذه الأمراض الخبيثة ،وجاء تخوف هذه الأوساط خوفا من تنقل الفيروس لبعض الولايات المجاورة أو الدول الشقيقة خاصة تونس التي يزور مواطنيها يوميا الولاية بغرض التسوق. On the other hand revealed MP Dacey Moussaoui telephone novelty that follow file swine flu speaking for clues initial virus will be detected later, and the transfer of MP Dacey that will coordinate with the rest of his colleagues in order to question the government, represented in its minister first on the status of health in the south and Bawadi will specifically to spare population such as this malignant disease, and this fear came circles for fear of transmitting the virus to some neighboring states or sisterly countries, especially Tunisia, which is visiting its citizens daily state for the purpose of shopping.

Three others were similarly affected and survived after resuscitation in the Infectious Diseases Department of the El Wadi Hospital. Medical sources have confirmed this report and further stated that the deceased were admitted to hospital in serious condition, with a dry cough, high fever, and difficulty in breathing, adding that the exact cause of death remains unknown.

                      The dead patients included one woman and were 49, 47 and 28 years of age living in Hassani Abdelkarim, El Oued, and Bayadha. Our source stated further that blood samples from the victims of "this strange virus" have been sent to the Pasteur Institute for further analysis.

                      The 3 surviving patients were between 40-58 years of age and originated from El Oued province.

                      [The information provided is not sufficient to identify the virus involved, if indeed these cases of severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) are caused by virus infection. The outcome of the diagnostic tests at the Algerian Pasteur Institute is awaited. The affected victims and patients appear to be unrelated and to originate from different communities, which suggests that they may be particularly vulnerable individuals affected by a relatively common respiratory virus.

                      According to the current WHO Global Influenza update: "Algeria, Israel, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and Pakistan have noted increases in influenza activity. In the Northern Africa region, Tunisia also reported transmission increases. Algeria, The Islamic Republic of Iran, and Iraq reported mostly influenza A(H1N1)pdm09."

                      El Oued is located 400 miles southeast of Algiers (the capital city of Algeria), near the Tunisian border. The population of El Oued was 139 362 as of the 1998 census.

                            Hat-tip Pathfinder. Eight H1N1 fatalities in a single village is a bit unusual.

                            TAMANRASSET: A mysterious disease kills eight people
                            Eight people have died of a mysterious illness in a village Tinzaouatine south of the wilaya of Tamanrasset. The information was reported by Algeria-Patriotic health sources.




                            These people who have contracted a virus whose symptoms are similar to flu, died after being admitted to the health center of the city of Tinzaouatine. The death of these patients has led to a panic in the city and villages Tinzaouatine, fearing a disease from Mali, with refugees who fled the war. A medical source Tamanrasset contacted by us, told us he was a severe influenza type A H1N1 as the one who took the life of two people last week in the province of tiziouzou. A specialized medical team was dispatched to ascertain the situation and confirm the diagnosis by doctors health center Tinzaouatine. If the diagnosis is confirmed, specific measures should be taken, including the vaccination of the population against the flu to prevent an epidemic in the region, which would spread throughout the country. The vaccine against seasonal flu is also effective against H1N1.

                              This isn't a machine translation issue; the original French really does say "bird flu". But it has to be an error....

                              http://www.presse-dz.com/info-algeri...e-aviaire.html

                              It killed four people in El Oued and Tizi Ouzou
                              Alert to bird flu!

                              We certainly all heard of H1N1. But it is said that this disease is far from reaching us. The reality is completely different. This epidemic is already in our walls and even comes to a third victim.

                              February 5, 2013, The Courier of Algeria
                              Last Sunday, in effect, a new death was recorded in the wilaya of Tizi Ouzou. A pregnant woman died of the virus.

                              This is the fourth victim, caused by the flu after two cases identified at the end of last week, at El-Oued. The victim had caught the virus in unknown conditions, given that health officials do not give much information about this disease.

                              This is the second death in the wilaya of Tizi Ouzou. Apparently, this city is the most affected by this new contamination, and it comes after two other deaths in the wilaya of El Oued. But officials continue to say that this is a seasonal flu it is true that the flu this year is particularly severe, but not enough to cause death.

                              Djamel Chaghetmi, Director of Health, said during a conference at the headquarters of the wilaya of Tizi Ouzou no influenza viruses particularly virulent'''' at the wilaya of Tizi Ouzou is to report .

                              Chaghetmi said the flu caused by the H1N1 virus, included in the group of influenza Class A'' has become a seasonal flu vaccine is available and''. So, the Algerian authorities encourage citizens to get vaccinated against seasonal flu.

                              And they completely neglect the swine flu, for fear of causing panic among citizens. They do not cease to remember that the vaccine against seasonal flu is available in all wilayas, and until the end of the winter season.

                              But it is difficult to convince the Algerians to be vaccinated. We should also remember that people who suffer from chronic illnesses, children, the elderly, and pregnant women are most vulnerable to this disease and the risk of death is very high among them.

                              Remember, swine flu appeared, a few years ago, and has caused many deaths across the world. But, paradoxically, Algeria had been spared at this time. However, in 2013, it is quite the contrary, H1N1 seems to be giving back, but only in Algeria, where we are already the fourth victim.

                              The swine flu vaccine had caused a great hype. Many people believed that H1N1 is a conspiracy on the part of major laboratories worldwide to sell the vaccine, and that out of the economic crisis. But it is difficult to confirm anything, about this subject, since the investigations so far have brought nothing new.

                              From this point of view, all arguments are permitted, especially that Algeria is a country that has earned a reputation for spending, not to mention, when it comes to international markets.
