    Killing two babies, who were suspected of influenza A
    Two children suspected of having influenza A died during the weekend at the Provincial Center of Child Health (Cepsi) Eva Per?n. These are patients with viral diseases at the hospital where doctors performed a routine swab samples and sent to the Institute Malbr?n but still no results.

    (DIARIOC, 06/07/2009) In a conversation with liberalism, Dr. Carlos Marrod?n, director of the hospital, described how patients are dealt with in this type of situation: "The young do a swab and when we see the results neither within a box hadenovirus a sinsicial or other influenza Malbr?n to send it for consideration. "
    While from the Cepsi specifying the number of suspected cases from which samples were sent for analysis to the Institute Malbr?n, said "many" and that "special care and are under surveillance."
    In babies under one year, the impact of influenza A is more important because of the age. However, influenza A (H1N1) is affecting more young people and young adults. In the same way, pregnant women comprise a group of higher risk.

    Also, this weekend was evident in Cepsi a marked decrease in the consultations on the guard. Marrod?n felt that this was due to the suspension of classes, but cautioned that "while there is less amount of people who come are serious paintings."
    "You should not think that is something casual - Marrod?n said - is a sign of health, because forty-eight hours after the suspension of classes and there are changes in the figures."
    "We had seven hundred a day until two days after the suspension of classes - the doctor remarked - down to six, two days later and now we are four hundred, which are among the figures that always manages the hospital."
    The children now go to the doctor do when your table has already advanced health. "We're seeing fewer patients, but much more serious - Marrod?n remarked - with more severe complications in relation to what we saw before. Those who come to watch. "

    Another death with symptoms of influenza A in Santiago

    The deceased is a man of 39 years who was in the hospital Independence. Still no official data and not known exactly how many patients are in that province, which has no beds in private schools.

    This adds to the death of other patients whose deaths were linked to influenza A, although none has yet received the results of the tests being conducted at the Institute Malbr?n.

    Yesterday, Health Minister Santiago, Luis C?sar Mart?nez, confirmed that there are investigating several deaths of this kind, but it is still premature to say whether it was the influenza A which has caused death. Martinez said, in this sense, I could not yet give an official number of cases of this kind, and also admitted to not knowing exactly how many patients in total are in the province that actually have the virus, he published the newspaper El Liberal.

    "Many times we go behind the numbers and we can not say that there is nothing more than those who reported in the official party - the minister said - there are many people who have no symptoms, or who have nothing but cough and even then consult. So we can not say this is the number of people who have the virus. What we know is people who come from clinics, hospitals and private clinics since.

    Furthermore, Martinez said that "human errors" and that "a nation from Santiago arrived a couple of samples from two people who were made twice by mistake."

    To be consulted by the case of deceased patients who might be linked to the pandemic, said that "not all cases are reported when a patient who died was suspected of having the virus, and that" today we have to wait to report that the institute Malbr?n.

    For the moment, "an analysis is being done with individual hospitals and the people of the Civil Registry to see what the status of these deaths and if they have a relationship or not with influenza A," remarked Martinez.
