          Re: Brasil : 399 swine flu cases confirmed

          25/06/2009 --

          Hospitals, SP breaks protocol of swine flu, has 399 cases

          Almost 50 days after the country confirmed the first cases of people infected by influenza virus A (H1N1), influenza causes fever, some hospitals in S?o Paulo has not adhering to the guidelines of the protocol of the Ministry of Health care for suspected cases -- -even with 186 cases in the state.


          Report of the Film (full subscribers to the Daily and the newspaper) found that lack basic questions about the history of the patient: it was recently in another country (mainly Argentina, Chile, Canada, USA and Mexico) or kept in touch with someone who has just to return from abroad.

          This question is important, according to the Ministry of Health, because, first, information on international travel is an important indication that the disease may not be a common flu but swine flu.

          The Ministry of Health confirmed Wednesday that another 65 cases of swine flu - the so-called influenza A (H1N1) - in Brazil, bringing to 399 the number of people infected by the virus in the country. All of them, according to the government, originated from abroad (the patient traveled or had contact with someone who went).

          Of the total of people infected with the virus in Brazil, only two are hospitalized - two in Rio Grande do Sul, infected abroad.

          Restrictions

          Due to the large number of confirmed cases, the Health Minister Jose Gomes Tempor?o, recommended this Tuesday to be postponed to travel to countries at risk of infection with swine influenza, including Argentina and Chile.

          The minister stressed that the measure is a recommendation and not a determination, because the government may not prohibit the movement of people, since there is a determination of the WHO (World Health Organization) on the subject.

          According to the minister, the recommendation applies to all Brazilians, especially for pregnant women and immunosuppressed persons (cancer patients and in treatment of AIDS, for example), children under two years and older with 60 years or more.

          To Tempor?o increase in the number of cases occurred in the country because many of the test results that found the disease were ready now. The minister said the government's concern is now with the holidays of July, when the movement of people is greater. The minister said that the recommendations made by the Health Surveillance and monitoring do not change will continue.

            Countries with confirmed cases above 10 that are largely from patients abroad are simply not testing locally. Screening at airports detects a small percentage of infected passengers (passengers infected within a few days of travel, those controling fever with medication, and those who don't develop a high fever, will not be identified by thermal scans). Most leave the airport and spread infections locally.

            399/399 linked to travel signals limited, if any, testing within communities (other than contact tracing).

              Brazil has 591 new confirmed cases of flu

              27/06/2009 - 16h31m

              The Ministry of Health reported this Saturday (27) were 69 more confirmed new cases of infection with influenza virus A (H1N1) in the states of S?o Paulo (34), Rio de Janeiro (8), Rio Grande do Sul (7) , Paran? (7), Minas Gerais (4), Distrito Federal (2), Santa Catarina (2), Esp?rito Santo (2), Par? (1), Maranh?o (1) and Amazon (1). With new cases confirmed in the total reaches 591 cases.

              This number includes cases reported to the Ministry of Health by the three reference laboratories for the diagnosis of influenza (Oswaldo Cruz Foundation Rio de Janeiro, Instituto Evandro Chagas / Instituto Adolf Lutz and PA / SP) and / or the State and Municipal Secretariats of Health, through the Information System (SINAN).

              In all cases, are being made finding and monitoring of all persons who have close contact with these patients.

              Of the total confirmed cases, two patients from Rio Grande do Sul are hospitalized. The State Health Secretariat of Rio Grande do Sul, with support from the Ministry of Health, follows the evolution of the clinical picture of patients. The two cases were infected abroad.

              Until June 25, the Ministry of Health followed 477 suspected cases in the country. Samples with respiratory secretions of patients are in analysis. Other 782 cases were discarded.
              Cases around the world - the world, the number of cases of the disease does not stop growing. The World Health Organization (WHO) announced in its newsletter this Friday (26) an increase of 3,947 cases of influenza in the last record, on Wednesday.

              According to the UN agency on Friday (26) in the world had 59,814 infected with influenza A (H1N1) and 263 people died due to disease, not to the Brazilian case. The largest increase in cases occurred in Chile, which recorded 871 more cases in just two days.

              The disease - In the note, the Ministry of Health detailed the new measures to tackle the disease in Brazil. See the main points.

              Measure 1: The states and municipalities have passed the basic parameters, to guide any suspension of activities in public places or groups. This is the case of kindergartens, schools, businesses, for example. The recommendation is to avoid unnecessary locks these sites, which could increase this feeling of restlessness among the population. What is the minister reiterated that no action be taken without prior consultation with the boards of health surveillance and public health of each municipality.

              Measure 2: There was expansion of care to reduce the potential for resistant virus to treatment and to prevent a greater number of people develop reactions to medication applied to the cases of Influenza A (H1N1). This means a change of protocol in the care of patients.

              "The concern is to provide drug in cases where it is not necessary to medicine, where the body will give a natural way with this disease without any risk to the person. I am preventing an excessive contact of the virus with the drug and a future possibility of developing resistance, "noted Tempor?o. "The vast majority of people are contracting the virus develop a mild to disease, with recovery without the need for medical treatment."

              Measure 3: The process of confirmation of cases, in part, also changes. Until now, there were samples of biological material used individually to confirm the disease in each patient. The confirmation was always individual and laboratory. Now, when occurrence of infecta??o someone proven laboratory, people with epidemiological link with that patient in the same institution - such as schools, nurseries and businesses - and showing symptoms of influenza A (H1N1), now considered infected. The epidemiological link, then become sufficient for confirmation.

              Until then, the laboratory confirmation occurred in the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (RJ), the Instituto Evandro Chagas (PA) and the Instituto Adolfo Lutz (SP). Tempor?o The minister also announced that three other labs in the country will make the confirmation of the disease. This measure is due to the increased demand to reference laboratories for influenza A (H1N1). Despite this growth, there are enough kits for diagnosis.

The case is under investigation and, as the State Department of Health and director of the hospital, to confirm the cause of death will be informed on Monday, will be ready when the results of the examinations. Death can be the first caused by the virus in Brazil.

                  Brannan, who showed signs of illness, was a mechanical engineer and was in Rio Grande do Sul on a business trip. He came to the State on June 21, Sunday, but on Wednesday last was in the hospital complaining of pain and fever. The patient went into coma the next day and subsequently died.

The city suffers consequences arising from the already cold, and masked people walking the streets, suspended classes and events, shops and hotels empty. Porto Alegre, as the last survey, has infected 18.

                  Changes in treatment
                  During the afternoon press conference this Friday (26), the Health Minister Jose Gomes Tempor?o, announced changes in the treatment of patients who contracted the swine influenza (H1N1) in the country.

                  Receive medication only patients with suspected disease who present worsening of symptoms in 48 hours or that belong to the so-called high-risk group - children under two years old, elderly, pregnant women, people with immunosuppression (eg, cancer patients, undergoing treatment for AIDS or regular use of corticosteroids), and patients who have diabetes, heart disease, lung disease or chronic renal.

                  The measure was taken to prevent patients who do not have the disease are treated and allow the virus mutation and resistance to existing treatment. "The USA is more the product, the greater the likelihood that the new body to undergo a change and will provide resistance," said Tempor?o. The measure follows international protocols, said the government.

                  Patients who have only suspected of the disease and do not fit in the groups will be asked to follow voluntary quarantine, isolation and compulsory treatment.

                  Other changes
                  Two more measures were disclosed by the ministry. The process of confirmation of cases in a single institution such as schools and businesses, will be modified.

                  Simply confirmation of only one case of swine influenza in the laboratory for people who have maintained contact with the patient, and symptoms are diagnosed by epidemiological link.

                  The other measure announced is the sending of guidance to health authorities, municipal and state surveillance to ensure that establishments are closed unnecessarily.

                  "In companies, schools or universities, the suspension of activities shall be taken only upon recommendation of the public health." According to Tempor?o, the goal is to preserve security and avoid panic. "There was quite unnecessary measures. None of this would have to happen if that were taken with very clear criteria."

                  Recommendations for travelers
                  The minister reiterated that the Brazilians should continue to avoid travel to countries that have sustained transmission of the disease: Argentina, Chile, United States, Mexico, Canada and Australia. Tempor?o did not want to comment on the response of Chile to the recommendation that most Brazilians do not travel the country and said that the recommendations are clear. "It is only a recommendation, who want to travel, traveling," he said.

                  The minister said the number of cases increased significantly because the virus is new, so no one defense against him, the increase of travelers due to holidays and the beginning of winter in the southern hemisphere.

A Secretaria Estadual de Sa?de do Rio Grande do Sul, com apoio do Minist?rio da Sa?de, acompanha a evolu??o do quadro cl?nico dos pacientes. Os dois casos foram infectados no exterior. At? 25 de junho, o Minist?rio da Sa?de acompanhava 477 casos suspeitos no pa?s. Outros 782 casos foram descartados.

                  Poss?vel 1? v?tima fatal

                  Nesta sexta-feira o norte-americano Michael Glenn Brannan, de 58 anos, morreu no Hospital Unimed Vale do Ca?, em Montenegro, a 60 quil?metros de Porto Alegre (RS) gerando suspeitas de que o ?bito foi causado pela gripe su?na. O caso est? em investiga??o e, conforme a Secretaria Estadual da Sa?de e a dire??o do hospital, a confirma??o da causa da morte ser? informada na segunda-feira, quando estar?o prontos os resultados dos exames. A morte pode ser a primeira causada pelo v?rus no Brasil.

                  Brannan, que apresentou ind?cios da doen?a, era engenheiro mec?nico e estava no Rio Grande do Sul em viagem de trabalho. Ele chegou ao Estado em 21 de junho, domingo, por?m, na quarta-feira passada foi internado no queixando-se de dores e febre. O paciente entrou em coma no dia seguinte e, posteriormente, faleceu. Gerson Ant?nio Reis da Silva, presidente do hospital, ressaltou que o homem permaneceu isolado no per?odo da interna??o.

Outros 95 diagn?sticos continuam apenas como suspeitos e 37 j? foram descartados. S?o Gabriel, localizada no Centro do Estado, contabiliza 28 contaminados. A cidade j? sofre reflexos decorrentes da gripe, como pessoas caminhando de m?scaras pelas ruas, aulas e eventos suspensos, com?rcios e hot?is vazios. Porto Alegre, conforme o ?ltimo levantamento, possui 18 infectados.

                  Mudan?as no tratamento
                  Durante entrevista coletiva na tarde desta sexta-feira (26), o ministro da Sa?de, Jos? Gomes Tempor?o, anunciou mudan?as no tratamento dos pacientes que contra?ram a gripe su?na (H1N1) no pa?s.

                  Receber?o medicamentos apenas os pacientes com suspeita da doen?a que apresentarem agravamento do quadro cl?nico em 48 horas ou que pertencerem ao chamado grupo de risco - crian?as menores de dois anos de idade, idosos, gestantes, pessoas com imunodepress?o (por exemplo, pacientes com c?ncer, em tratamento para Aids ou em uso regular de corticoster?ides), al?m de pacientes que tenham diabetes, cardiopatia, doen?a pulmonar ou renal cr?nica.

                  A medida foi tomada para evitar que pacientes que n?o tenham a doen?a sejam medicados e possibilitem a muta??o do v?rus e a resist?ncia ao tratamento existente. "Quanto mais se usa o medicamento, maior a probabilidade que esse novo organismo possa sofrer uma muta??o e passe a apresentar resist?ncia", afirmou Tempor?o. A medida segue protocolos internacionais, ressaltou o governo.

                  Os pacientes que tiverem apenas suspeitas da doen?a e n?o se encaixarem nos grupos ser?o orientados a seguir quarentena volunt?ria, isolamento e tratamento compuls?rio.

                  Outras mudan?as
                  Mais duas medidas foram divulgadas pelo minist?rio. O processo de confirma??o de casos em uma mesma institui??o, como escolas e empresas, ser? modificado.

                  Bastar? a confirma??o de apenas um caso de gripe su?na em laborat?rio para que as pessoas que tenham mantido contato com o paciente, e tamb?m apresentem sintomas, sejam diagnosticadas por v?nculo epidemiol?gico.

                  A outra medida anunciada ? o envio de orienta??es ?s autoridades de vigil?ncias sanit?rias municipais e estaduais para evitar que estabelecimentos sejam fechados sem necessidade.

                  "Em empresas, escolas ou universidades, a suspens?o de atividades deve ser tomada apenas ap?s recomenda??o das autoridades de sa?de p?blica". De acordo com Tempor?o, o objetivo ? preservar a seguran?a e evitar p?nico. "Houve medidas totalmente desnecess?rias. Nada disso precisaria acontecer se isso fosse tomado com crit?rios bastante claros."

                  Recomenda??es a viajantes
                  O ministro reiterou que os brasileiros devem continuar evitando viajar a pa?ses que tenham transmiss?o sustentada da doen?a: Argentina, Chile, Estados Unidos, M?xico, Canad? e Austr?lia. Tempor?o n?o quis comentar a rea??o do Chile ? recomenda??o de que os brasileiros n?o viajassem mais ao pa?s e afirmou que as recomenda??es s?o claras. "? apenas uma recomenda??o, quem quiser viajar, viaja", disse.

                  O ministro afirmou que o n?mero de casos aumentou de forma significativa porque o v?rus ? novo, portanto ningu?m tem defesa contra ele, pelo aumento de viajantes devido a feriados e pelo in?cio do inverno no hemisf?rio sul.

                    SAO PAULO, June 28 (Reuters) - Brazil had its first death from the H1N1 influenza, or swine flu, on Sunday, after a 50-year-old man succumbed to the virus which he picked up in Argentina, the health ministry said in a statement.

                    He first showed symptoms on June 15 while on a trip to Argentina, which has had several deaths due to the flu. After returning to Brazil on June 19, he was admitted to a hospital the following day where he was confirmed to have the H1N1 virus.

                    The ministry has in recent days warned Brazilians against traveling in Argentina and Chile.

                    It also said the total confirmed cases of the deadly flu had reached 627 in Brazil.

                    Officials expect further deaths as the virus spreads during the coming winter months, which began a week ago in Brazil.

                    Currently, 114 countries have confirmed cases of the H1N1 flu, according to the World Health Organization. (Reporting by Reese Ewing) (reese.ewing@thomsonreuters.com; +5511 8160-4173)

                              Brazil reported its first death from virus AH1N1

                              The Ministry of Health acknowledged that the figure of 756 infections, a significant increase in indigenous cases.
                              by Orb - 03/07/2009 - 20:07

                              The Brazilian Ministry of Health announced today that it has detected 19 new infections of human influenza, for a total of 756 cases with one death.

                              "We see a significant increase in indigenous cases of contagion," but clarified that "no evidence of virus circulation within the country," said the Brazilian Health Minister Jose Gomes Temorao.

                              He indicated that this increase is due to the number of people who have traveled abroad and were infected with the disease and return to Brazil to spread the virus to someone nearby.

                              The minister insisted that there is no evidence of contagion in Brazil in people who have not had contact with persons who traveled abroad. Such movement of the virus occurs in Argentina, Chile, Mexico, United States, Australia and United Kingdom.

                              With the new trend, Temorao Gomes stressed the need to direct people to go to a health center in case of perceived symptoms.
