          Mohd Hyafiq (rpt) Hyafiq Aiman Mohd Saiful Afendi died at the Tengku Ampuan Afzan (HTAA) Hospital here at 12.40pm after suffering from pneumonia.

          The boy's mother, identified only as Tia, said her son was admitted to the hospital on Aug 1 after he developed fever and complained of stomach ache.

          She said her only child, a pupil of the Unity Kindergarten in Taman Bukit Setongkol, was buried at the Bukit Ubi cemetery this evening. She also claimed that she was not allowed to see her son while he was under quarantine at the hospital and was informed this afternoon that he had died.

            Five more deaths bring H1N1 toll to 13
            Reports by STEPHEN THEN, LOH FOON FONG, EMBUN MAJID, MARTIN CARVALHO, MANJIT KAUR, CLARA CHOOI, FARIK ZOLKEPLI, GLADYS TAY, LESTER KONG and

            Kuala lumpur: The deaths of five people within 72 hours have brought the number of the influenza A (H1N1)-related fatalities to 13.

            The latest case involved Mohd Hyafiq Afendi, six, from Pahang. He died at the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital at 12.40pm after suffering from pneumonia.

            The boy was admitted to the hospital on Aug 1 after developing fever and complaining of stomach ache.

            Of the other four victims, three were in Malacca and one in Batu Pahat. The Malacca girl was the youngest, aged three.

            All five victims were suffering from chronic respiratory problems when they contracted the virus.

            “In Malacca, the girl and a 20-year-old man suffered from chronic lung diseases, while a 12- year-old boy had serious kidney failure before he was infected by the H1N1 virus,” Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said in a press conference in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, yesterday.

            In Johor Baru, a six-year-old boy became the 12th H1N1-related victim.

            The boy was suffering from pneumonia and he died in the Batu Pahat Hospital here yesterday, said state Health department director Dr Mohd Khairi Yaakub.

            Liow was in Brunei with six other Cabinet ministers accompanying Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak for the annual consultative meeting with Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah.

            He said there were 16 new cases yesterday, bringing the total number of cases to 1,426.

            Commenting on the worsening haze condition, Liow said it complicated “an already very difficult situation”.

            “Polluted air can result in an increase of respiratory ailments - a situation which will cause the victims to be more vulnerable in the event of a fatal H1N1 virus attack.

            “The H1N1 virus attacks the lung-cells directly. It then causes serious pneumonia. Those with respiratory ailments have weaker immune systems and the attack can be more serious,” he said.

            Malaysia and Brunei, added Liow, have agreed to increase joint efforts to tackle the spread of the flu.

            He said Brunei was very stringent in the precautionary measures adopted, especially the health screenings and surveillance along its border checkpoints.

            “In Malacca, the girl and a 20-year-old man suffered from chronic lung diseases, while a 12-year-old boy had serious kidney failure before he was infected by the H1N1 virus,” Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said in a press conference in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, yesterday.

              Influenza A H1N1 Deaths Leap To 14

              Influenza A H1N1 Deaths Leap To 14

              PUTRAJAYA, Aug 6 (Bernama) -- Another death related to Influenza A (H1N1), that of a 57-year old male pensioner at the Putrajaya Hospital Wednesday, has raised the number of deaths due to the pandemic to 14 since this morning.

              Director-General of Health Tan Sri Dr Mohd Ismail Merican said the victim who had diabetes and hypertension was admitted to the hospital's intensive care unit (ICU) with symptoms of fever, cough and difficulty in breathing.

              "He was confirmed having the virus yesterday. He died yesterday of Acute Pulmonary Oedema secondary to H1N1," he told reporters here Thursday.

              In that regard, Dr Mohd Ismail again stressed that people with high risk like pregnant women, those with lung disease, obesity, diabetes, asthma, low immunity, heart disease and breathing difficulty to seek immediate treatment at the nearest clinic or hospital as treatment for Influenza A (H1N1) was very effective if treatment was started within 48 hours of onset of symptoms.

              He said for those who have normal influenza symptoms and not in the high risk groups they are advised to not panic and rush to get themselves tested.

              He said this was because many H1N1 cases in Malaysia, and the rest of the world, would show light symptoms and 98 per cent would recover even without specific medicine.

              "Patients with light symptoms are asked to rest and God Willing will recover in three or four days. After recovering they will have the anti-body, so it is not necessary for all cases with light symptoms to undergo H1N1 testing," he said.

              Dr Mohd Ismail said H1N1 testing would only be done for cases admitted to ward and those with high risk.

              He said this was because the Institute of Medical Research (IMR) which is responsible for testing is swamped with 500 tests a day and that 80-90 per cent were tested negative.

                    The other death is a four-year-old with hyperthyroidism and pneumonia at the Sultanah Aminah Hospital who also died on Friday. The child had had fever, cough and running nose for a week before seeking treatment last Sunday.

                              H1N1: Eight More Deaths Today, Death Toll Is 26

                              KOTA KINABALU, Aug 9 (Bernama) -- Eight more deaths relating to Influenza A (H1N1) were confirmed today, bringing the death toll to 26 in the country.

                              Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said seven deaths were from the high-risk group and that some were post-reported due to post-mortem to study and confirm the cause of deaths.

                              He said that a death occurred on Aug 3, followed by two more (Aug 5), four (Aug 6) and another (Aug 8)," he told reporters at a ceremony to re-name Hospital Likas to Hospital Wanita dan Kanak-kanak Sabah here, Sunday.

                              Liow disclosed that two of the cases were from Sabah.

                              He said the first involved an obese 24-year-old woman who was warded at the Ranau Hospital on Aug 1, with fever and cough for four days.

                              She was later referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) here on Aug 5 and died on the same day.

                              The other case involved a 74-year-old man with chronic heart disease, who was admitted to QEH on Aug 3, with a history of month-long difficult breathing and fever for just one day.

                              He died on Aug 6.

                              Other cases include a 20-year-old female student treated as outpatient for Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) on Aug 1 and found dead in a hostel room, five days later; a 48-year-old man with asthmatic and hypertensive history from Sarawak, and a 37-year-old obese man from Johor.

                              Liow said at present, there were 62 cases in total, receiving treatment in hospitals and another 13 at intensive care units (ICU), while an additional five suspected H1N1 cases were also at ICU waiting for results.

                              "So far in Sabah, confirmed cases of H1N1 are 402 cases, two deaths, seven currently in hospitals where one is in ICU, and seven more ILI cases, pending confirmation," he said, adding that there were children involved but he did not have details.

                              Liow said 35 schools had been closed in Sabah due to the H1N1 outbreak.
