    Bolivia hopes to confirm six deaths with high suspicion of influenza AH1N1

    Health authorities reported today that they are awaiting lab reports to confirm or exclude the deaths of six people with high suspicion of carrying the virus A (H1N1), which would rise to 25 the death toll in Bolivia by the pandemic, reported government's information agency ABI.

    The National Epidemiology director Eddy Martinez, the ABI confirmed that three people from three of Potosi and La Paz were reported as victims of influenza A, but must be confirmed with laboratory tests that have not yet arrived in La Paz.

    "At the moment there are 19 official deaths AH1N1 influenza, but we await the outcome of the six laboratory tests," he said.

    Martinez said that this procedure may take several days because he has not established what laboratory samples were sent for three deaths in Potosi.

    In the case of the dead in La Paz, the samples are analyzed at the National Institute of Health Laboratories (INLASA).
    On Monday night, doctors at Sacred Heart hospital in the city of El Alto, reported the death of a 31 year old woman who was admitted to the hospital with a critical picture of respiratory failure.
