      (AP) PARIS - France's health authority says a young woman who tested positive for swine flu and also had another serious illness has died.

      In a statement Thursday, the health authority said in a statement Thursday "the conclusions of a clinical evaluation are not in favor of a direct link between the virus and the death." It was a medical test that revealed the woman also had swine flu.

      The statement said the victim also had a severe respiratory infection as well as her unidentified "serious illness." It did not provide the woman's name or age or any other details.

          We are far from what happen in US, or Americas.
          And, with all Frenchies in holidays, only a darker situation can "awaken the attention" of French people toward this true worldwide threat.
          On the Beach or in the Subway, we don't react the same way, unless you are a tourist in Paris.

          We are at level 5 in France , and I don't believe the health minister would move up the alert level to the Top right now.

            @SteveoSteen

            The Health Minister is toying with the idea to raise the level to 6 in September, right for schools restart, according to the media in the last few days.

            Actually, people are starting to be aware that something is not right. Every day the French 24hr radio broadcasts various items on H1N1. Newspapers also. I think people don't yet dare admit it, but they are now primed and watching. There's hardly a family here that doesn't have some youngster who either goes to UK or Spain for a holiday, or who knows a family who does.

            The whole country will almost stop on 1st August until 30th August for sacro-sankt holidays, where the factories close and everyone escapes away, including civil servants. It will even be difficult to find a bakery open in Paris. Don't count on getting accurate figures during August.

            In the summer 2003, during the heat wave, the president and ministers were on holidays in comfortable air-conditioned places, and there was no-one to raise the alarm apart from a few dedicated medical, morgue, funeral staff, and refrigerated trucks owners... The final official count was 15,000 dead "only from the heat" - they didn't count those with underlying conditions...

            The French have not forgotten how TPTB behaved. Wait till September and early October when it starts being here like it is now in UK and we'll see how my fellow citizens react.

              Le décès a eu lieu il y a au moins une semaine. L'information n'a été rendue publique par l'InVS que jeudi en raison du "délai nécessaire pour confirmer la contamination".
              The death took place there are at least a week. The information was made public by the InVS Thursday that because of the time needed to confirm the contamination.


              http://www.lefigaro.fr/sante/2009/07/30/01004-20090730ARTFIG00408-deces-en-france-d-une-jeune-fille-porteuse-du-virus-h1n1-.php

              La France devient le cinquième pays européen à enregistrer un décès lié à la grippe. Trente et une personnes sont mortes en Grande-Bretagne, 7 en Espagne, une en Hongrie et une première jeudi en Belgique. Il s'agissait d'une femme d'une trentaine d'années qui a succombé à une «double pneumonie d'origine virale»

              1.022 cas confirmés ou probables en France

              Mercredi, selon un dernier bilan, la France totalisait 1.022 cas confirmés ou probables, dont 4 cas graves, depuis le début de l'épidémie. On compte 852 cas pour la seule métropole : 556 cas confirmés, auxquels s'ajoutent 296 cas probables qui n'ont pas fait l'objet de tests virologiques.

              Au 29 juillet, 31 personnes avaient été hospitalisées, dont 27 sont sortis. Seuls 4 patients adultes (entre 39 et 70 ans) ont nécessité un recours aux soins intensifs : 3 pneumopathies bactériennes et une hypoxémie (abaissement de la pression d'oxygène dans le sang) mal tolérée chez une personne âgée.

              Mardi, la ministre de la Santé Roselyne Bachelot avait prévenu que le niveau 6 d'alerte du plan de lutte contre le virus pourrait être décrété en France à la rentrée de septembre. Aujourd'hui, le niveau d'alerte est de 5A sur le sol français. Dernier grade du plan national contre la pandémie grippale, le niveau 6 permet de mettre en œuvre une série de mesures concernant notamment les écoles, entreprises et transports.

              François Fillon avait de son coté assuré vendredi dernier que le pays était «prêt» à affronter une pandémie de grippe A(H1N1), qu'il juge «inévitable» en automne.

              France becomes the fifth European country to register a death related to influenza. Thirty-one people died in Britain, 7 in Spain, one in Hungary and the first Thursday in Belgium. It was a woman of thirty years who succumbed to a "double viral pneumonia"

              1022 confirmed or probable cases in France

              Wednesday, according to a latest balance sheet, France had 1022 confirmed or probable cases, including 4 serious cases since the epidemic began. There are 852 cases in the metropolis alone: 556 confirmed cases, plus 296 probable cases that have not been virological tests.

              On 29 July, 31 people were hospitalized, 27 of which are out. Only 4 adult patients (between 39 and 70 years) requiring use of intensive care: 3 bacterial pneumonia and hypoxemia (lower pressure of oxygen in the blood) poorly tolerated in an elderly person.

              Tuesday, Health Minister Roselyne Bachelot has warned that the Level 6 alert plan against the virus could be declared in France in September. Today, the alert level is 5A on french soil. Last grade of the national plan against pandemic influenza, the level 6 allows you to implement a series of measures including schools, businesses and transport.

              François Fillon had assured his side last Friday that the country was "ready" to confront a pandemic of influenza A (H1N1), which he considered "inevitable" in the fall.

              Earlier in the day, the Belgian health authorities announced that a woman of thirty years had died of a "double viral pneumonia", becoming the first victim in the country.

              BRUXELLES — Une jeune femme est décédée jeudi en Belgique des suites d'une contamination au virus de la grippe A(H1N1), devenant la première victime de cette maladie dans le pays, a annoncé le commissariat interministériel belge sur la grippe.

              Cette jeune femme d'une trentaine d'années, qui habite dans la province d'Anvers (nord), avait été admise lundi dans un service hospitalier d'urgence, après avoir à l'origine ressenti de "faibles symptômes grippaux" tels que mal de tête, fièvre légère et toux, a précisé cet organisme dans un communiqué.

              Son état n'était alors "pas préoccupant" selon les médecins. Mais elle est finalement décédée jeudi matin d'une "double pneumonie d'origine virale" malgré des soins intensifs. "Les analyses ont en même temps confirmé la présence du virus de la grippe A(H1N1)", a précisé le communiqué.

              "La pneumonie dont souffrait la jeune femme est une complication provoquée par la grippe", a précisé à l'AFP une porte-parole du commissariat interministériel.

              La Belgique devient le quatrième pays dans l'Union européenne à enregistrer un décès lié à ce virus de la grippe, après la Grande-Bretagne, qui totalise 31 morts selon un dernier bilan, l'Espagne avec sept décès et la Hongrie avec un mort.

              En Belgique, les statistiques récentes témoignent d'une accélération du nombre d'infections dans la population, avec environ 700 cas depuis le 27 avril. Mais si 126 cas avaient été répertoriés entre le 27 avril et le 13 juillet, 600 ont été enregistrés au cours des deux semaines suivantes, selon les estimations du commissariat interministériel belge.

              Ce dernier a toutefois relativisé ces chiffres en estimant qu'ils n'étaient pas plus inquiétants que ceux liés à la grippe saisonnière au cours des dernières années ...
              BRUSSELS - A young woman died Thursday in Belgium as a result of contamination of influenza virus A (H1N1), becoming the first victim of this disease in the country, announced the Belgian Interdepartmental Commission on Influenza.

              This young woman of thirty years, who lives in the province of Antwerp (north), was admitted Monday in a hospital emergency service, after the source felt "weak flu-like symptoms" such as headache, slight fever and cough, said this organization in a statement.

              His condition then was "not worrying" according to doctors. But it eventually died Thursday morning of a "double viral pneumonia" despite intensive care. "The analysis at the same time confirmed the presence of influenza virus A (H1N1)," said the press release.

              "The pneumonia suffered by the young woman is a complication caused by influenza," said the AFP to a spokesperson of the Commission Inter.

              Belgium became the fourth country in the European Union to register a death related to influenza virus, after Britain, which totals 31 dead according to a latest balance sheet, with seven deaths Spain and Hungary, with one dead .

              In Belgium, recent statistics show an acceleration in the number of infections in the population, with approximately 700 cases since April 27. But if 126 cases were registered between April 27 and July 13, 600 were recorded during the next two weeks, according to estimates by the Interministerial Commission of Belgium.
              The latter, however, these figures into perspective by considering that they were no more worrying than those associated with seasonal influenza in recent years...

                    Après l'annonce, jeudi, d'un premier décès en France d'un porteur de la grippe A, Roselyne Bachelot a tenu à faire le point. L'adolescente décédée, qui était hospitalisée au CHU de Brest, "souffrait d'une maladie grave", a expliqué la ministre de la Santé avant d'ajouter : "C'est une grippe qui sur des personnes fragiles, comme cette jeune fille, peut avoir des effets très aggravants." Et de faire valoir : "Il faudra se faire vacciner, quand nous le proposerons aux Français."

                    Selon Bachelot, les "industriels" du médicament annoncent que le vaccin "pourra être prêt fin septembre et début octobre". "Les livraisons s'échelonneront jusqu'au mois de décembre." Il s'agira d'une "grande campagne de vaccination qui s'adressera en tout premier lieu aux populations très fragiles". Elle annonce aussi une nouvelle "grande campagne" de communication "à partir du 25 août". "Le scénario d'un été qui verrait la pandémie continuer à augmenter (...) est celui que nous rencontrons", a-t-elle dit. "Je crois donc qu'il faut se préparer très activement à une reprise à l'automne."

                    Pour l'heure, le gouvernement a acquis 1,723 milliard de masques de protection et a commandé 94 millions de doses de vaccins.

It will be a "great campaign which aimed first of all to people very fragile." It also announces a new "campaign" communication "from the August 25".
