  • Bahamas: 3 deaths from H1N1 flu

    Forget the Dengue people are now dying from the SWINE FLU

    Nassau – A 35-year-old woman died from H1N1 influenza, otherwise known as swine flu, on Wednesday, Minister of Health Dr. Duane Sands reported today. This is the second death from H1N1 influenza in recent weeks.

    The first death was announced last month.
    Sands said, “Swine flu, while makes for great headlines, is not the same beast that we saw in 2009. We’re saying seasonal influenza and all influenza are serious.”
    Sands encouraged people to get the flu shot.

    Man dies from swine flu in The Bahamas

    NASSAU, Bahamas (CMC) The Bahamas Government has confirmed that a 61-year-old man has died from the H1N1 influenza, otherwise known as swine flu.
    Health Minister Dr Duane Sands, who was unable to provide any specifics about the case, said the death occurred last week.

    H1N1 speaks to a particular subtype of influenza and the technically correct term is H1N1 influenza. Swine flu, while it makes for great headlines, this is not the same beast that we saw in 2009. We're saying seasonal influenza and all influenza [are] serious, he added.

    The health minister said that there was no need for alarm given the recent death.
