    July 18 2009, 02:15 pm ET

    ASUNCION (AP) - The number of deaths from influenza in swine Paraguay rose to eight on Saturday, reported the health authorities.

    Iv?n Allende, director of Sanitary Surveillance of the Ministry of Public Health, told reporters that an adult man and a boy aged 12 died last Thursday, but the confirmation is issued until Saturday after the tests came out positive AH1N1 virus.

    So far the ministry has registered 164 individuals infected with the virus, of which 86 are in intensive care in public hospitals.

    Meanwhile, the number of suspects of having contracted the disease joined 1748, who are under medical surveillance.

    Seasonal influenza, meanwhile, claimed only 49 lives this year.

    Allende specified that this year there were 14,269 medical consultations for influenza in general.
