  • Brazil - Goi‚s, influenza 2019: 23 fatalities

    Two deaths for H1N1 were registered in Goi‚nia by the Municipal Health Department (SMS), in 2019. According to hospital information, one of the victims was a 53-year-old obese and unvaccinated man, the other an 81- who was also not immunized against the virus. Six additional cases were confirmed, five of them being caused by H1N1 and one by Influenza B. According to SMS, the demand for the vaccine is still low in some groups and the arrival of dry weather and winter facilitates the circulation of the virus. 'The most critical period for virus circulation is coming. Winter and dry weather are conducive for the virus to spread, so it is necessary for people to seek the vaccine to cope with this period, 'said Superintendent of Health Surveillance, Flķvia Amorim.
