    Posted: 20 July 2009 1752 hrs

    SINGAPORE: Two patients who waited too long to seek treatment are the latest to be infected with H1N1 and put in intensive care.

    They're patients with underlying conditions and who waited days before they sought treatment even though they had a fever.

    The Ministry of Health (MOH) said a 55-year-old man with motor neuron disease sought treatment on July 18 after two days of fever and shortness of breath.

    He suffered a heart attack at Changi General Hospital's Emergency Department.

    That day, a 42-year-old woman with hypertension and thyroid disease also turned up, after suffering five days of fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath.

    Separately, the three other patients still in intensive care at Singapore General Hospital are in stable condition.

    A total of 64 patients are in public hospitals for H1N1.

    The Health Ministry urged those in high risk groups to seek early treatment if they develop flu-like symptoms.

      Re: Singapore - H1N1 patients admitted to the ICU

      Thanks to Singapore for sharing patient information.

      Hopefully, publicizing the fact that the 46F waited for 7 days with fever and sore throat before seeking help and now she's in ICU will send a clear message - don't ignore symptoms if you have underlying conditions.
