            H1N1 continues to cause fatalities. On Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June, two patients tested positive for this influenza died. The first is Jacqueline Desvaux, a resident of Ste-Croix, aged 74 years. As for the Department of Health, we are told that she has been admitted since June 7 to the intensive care unit of the Dr. A.G. Jeetoo hospital following a respiratory infection. His state of health was very precarious. According to our information, the patient was suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes. "Since June 7, it was followed by the hospital service," it is said.

            The other deceased patient is Sounkan Atchia, aged 60 years. She was admitted on 3 June to the Wellkin private hospital in Moka, formerly Apollo Bramwell. Like the first victim, his health was bad. Indeed, it is explained that she had a medical history. She suffered from severe kidney failure. "She was on dialysis."

            Since the H1N1 flu has occurred, patients suspected of contracting the virus are being referred to the Flu Clinics of the five public hospitals on the island. If, over the previous two weeks, there was a large influx of patients, the Ministry of Health reported a decrease in the number of patients since the previous week. "People have become aware of this flu. They have begun to adopt good practices. And the patients have gone down. "

            The same observation was made by the Association of Private Physicians. According to its vice president, Dr. Ishaq Jowahir, the situation stabilizes in the medical centers. "People get vaccinated."

            To date, with these two victims, seven people have died of the H1N1 flu since the beginning of the year and one of H3N2. The latest is Savita Ayaperoomal, 33, who died on June 7 at the Dr. A.G Jeetoo hospital.
            "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
