    Tbilisi. March 12 (Prime-News) – Number of patients appealing to the Tbilisi Infection Hospital is increasing.


    Most likely the reason for their anxiety is death of two schoolgirls of the Tbilisi 50<SUP>th</SUP> secondary school; the nascent reports said that their death was a result of alleged “A” type of virus, Prime-News was told by the representatives of the TbilisiInfectionHospital.

    According to them, lives of four other students of the above-mentioned school and one of the parents of the school-child were not endangered in any way; one student has already been discharged and others might be discharged on Sunday.

    The doctors rule out possible infection of the patients with H5N1 bird flu strain.

    The patients were given Tamiflu for prevention of possible outbreak of bird flu either.

    The tests showed that Iana Beridze, 7, student of the Tbilisi 50<SUP>th</SUP> secondary school died after pneumonia on Thursday. The reason of death of Tamta Kukhelava, 12, another student of the same school, was staphylococcus, the doctors say.

    Two girls have died in Georgia during in the two days and parents of their fellow schoolers suppose the victims had bird flu.

    Georgian Health Ministry officials refute the reports that the girls could had contracted bird flu saying that no virus of this infection had been found in the victims? blood.

    Earlier, a girl died in Azerbaijan after being hospitalized for bird flu-like symptoms. However, the health ministry declined to reveal official cause of death.
