        Trinidad: H1N1 deaths rise to 32

        The number of confirmed deaths from the influenza virus has been confirmed as 32, the Ministry of Health said on Monday.

        The ministry has been engaged in an island-wide campaign aimed at sensitising the public about the influenza virus and encouraging citizens to get vaccinated. The virus is much more serious than the common flu and the vaccine is available at all health centres, free of charge.

        The 2020 official flu season is from October 2019 to May 2020, and citizens are advised to get vaccinated every year as the virus can mutate and the vaccine may not be able to stave off the new strain.
