    Swine flu has claimed its second casualty in Bulgaria, after a 43-year-old woman from Blagoevgrad succumbed to the strain in the Sofia Military Academy, Bulgarian media reported on January 28 2011.


    Medical officials say that there are 702 people infected for every 10 000 of the population. The doctors stress, however, that there is no reason for panic, as once adequate and timely treatment is applied, the swine flu would pass as "easily as any other strain, such as seasonal flu".
