    SANA’A, Jan. 23 — Following five confirmed deaths in Sana'a in December and four recent deaths in Taiz as a result of the H1N1 virus, an administrator at a local hospital said outbreaks of swine flu, as the virus is commonly known, are not as dangerous as public perception would lead.

    Dr. Salem Sameer No’man, the financial administration manager at the Yemen German Hospital, said the majority of those who die from the H1N1 virus are patients who already have compromised immune systems. He says the public can protect itself by going to pharmacies where vaccinations against the virus are readily available.
