  • 83 confirmed cases of A(H1N1) in Muntinlupa City

    MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Health Center for Health Development Metro Manila Regional Director Eduardo Janairo revealed on Wednesday that there are 83 confirmed cases of A(H1N1) in Muntinlupa City.

    He said the health department’s National Epidemiology Center (NEC) reported a total of 83 laboratory confirmed A(H1N1) cases in the said city from January 1 to November 5 this year.

    Janairo added that there have been no fatalities from the pandemic A(H1N1) reported.

    There are 109 cases in the National Capital Region, according to the DOH-CHD-MM.

    Janairo advised the public to wear warm clothing during cold weather and to “keep fit and strengthen their immune system against the influenza virus.”

    He also warned the public against going to crowded places “as the virus spread easily in closed contained areas because it is air-borne.”

    But Janairo clarified that there was no need for panic, saying that “the influenza virus is now treated as an ordinary flu and it can be treated by Oseltamivir, an over-the-counter drug that is available in major drugstores.”
