    A 65-year-old man died in Artigas from the H1N1 flu

    A person of 65 years died in Artigas after contracting the H1N1 flu and the number of deaths in the department rises to two. While another person is in a delicate state, but his symptoms are "confusing", so a study was conducted to confirm or rule out that it is a new case of H1N1. This was reported to Monte Carlo radio by the departmental director of Health of Artigas Dante Emilio Toma, who added that the deceased did not have the vaccine.
