    Another young man who died in Mercedes is likely to have contracted influenza A

    The news that another young person had died in Mercedes allegedly from Influenza A, re-sowing uncertainty among the population, since no official communication could corroborate the story and reporters are only based on unofficial sources, which in these cases is usually not as desirable because it leads to confusion, which only serve to increase the panic, instead of bringing peace to the people.

    Apparently this is another young man, who like the teacher Alberto Ayala, who died in similar circumstances a few days ago, suffered from serious illness symptoms that are consistent with symptoms of the virus Infuenza table. He was 32 years and was known for integrating the schools of samba comparsa It? Puc?, according to statements by the President of the comparsa, so I confirmed to the media.

    Would have perished on the road when an ambulance is transferred in critical condition to the City of Curuz?, after having been placed in recent days in the Sanatorio Mercedes.
