    How many more deaths are needed?

    By: Armando Vazquez de

    SOON MY friend Flavio showing me a message from a doctor Tijuana friend who informed him of the death of a doctor by the influenza A subtype H1N1. Then come the talk the case of a nurse of this city that died a few days ago at the San Jose Hospital. Then, it is pointed out on the radio that ten children of a garden of children of name Miriam, located in the Bougainvillea are infected and suffered the Cain to get Tamiflu because was already advanced the contagion. In the pharmacies of Sonora, the Kino, is the only one that has had the drug, but that is just fast. That son of a businessman known snow pushed buy Tamiflu in the Clinic of the Northwest and is denied it. That was unique to the patients of the center, and had to send him. That in the United States is this medicine in the pharmacies and worth fifteen dollars, but that in Arizona van more than ten dead and the price will tend to go upward. That in the border are passed to the other side to buy it. Chamaco my high school told me what had happened to a student in her lounge who lasted three day going to school with this disease and then two weeks hospitalized with the soul in suspense; my other Chamaco primary, told me that a teacher would have caught the flu.

    I read the information that they had two cold fronts. That the influenza had killed seven people in Sonora to 40 in Jalisco and in the country to 320. Suddenly the holder deSergio Olvera Alba, Director of Epidemiology at the Secretariat of Health, stated that there is still no to worry about. I wonder how many more deaths are required for the alarm to sound red?, 20, 30, 40?

    Then there is only one hundred thousand to Sonora vaccines, i hope that, for the moment, ready to be supplied in the health centers, but there is not a real campaign, as they do not want to frighten people. Also that the analysis to know if it is H1N1 is the introduction in the nose of a swab up to the painful background and then usually is sent to the State Laboratory of Public Health of Sonora where by the way, There has been no money to buy the reagents and has been to pique being that one or two years ago was classified among the best in the world. That for the detection of H1N1, if it comes in large volume there will be no responsiveness to time and as such will thing happened three or four or more years when this pandemic was born.

    And I have heard so many things, that in truth reader, the topic i is beginning to frighten. Some of the recommendations for preventing influenza are the frequent and adequate washing of the hands, not self-medicate, apply the vaccine against the disease and go with the doctor before symptoms of fever, general discomfort, trouble breathing, cough.

    I reader, How will the situation and if not carried out by the Secretariat of Health a mass vaccination campaign, at least in the schools, and that of course we remove the fear of the popes generated by any information that pointed out to us the danger of obtain visas and be vaccinated against influenza, if it does not act soon the owner, Dr. Bernardo Campillo, then it will be late for all those future deceased and their families.

    And that is not worth it.
