Heard by the Renaissance, Arsénio Santos, assistant of the clinical direction, says that it does not find particular reason any for this apparent concentration of serious cases of flu in the city. “ We are wrong to believe that there is something again in the specter of the flu.

In this case it was that that went on. She was a person with serious problems of health and it died again for the descompensação of other diseases that had ”, it explains. Ill 14 does not put any negative evolution in perspective for the remainder what are interned, five two which in the intensive cares, which besides the usual symptoms, have respiratory problems. The patients are diagnosed by flu A, one of two stocks in circulation this Winter. The virus A H1N1 is person in charge for the pandemia of flu of 2009, that from that time it entered in the composition of the vaccines, such as it happens this year. There is no certainty as for one or two patients, but of those who are interned in Inhabitant of Coimbra they did not vaccinate the majority.
