    Vietnam reports first human death of swine flu in years

    By Le Phuong June 9, 2018 | 07:03 am GMT+7
    ...
    A medical center in Ho Chi Minh said on Friday that one of its patients who died on May 30 had tested positive for influenza virus A/H1N1, making her the first swine flu casualty reported in the country in the past couple years.

    The 26-year-old woman passed away after she attempted self-treatment at home for five days, according to Nguyen Tri Dung, director of the Preventive Medicine Center of Ho Chi Minh City. This is the first casualty from swine flu reported in Vietnam since a 30-year-old man died in the central beach town Nha Trang in February 2014.
    ...
    Cho Ray Hospital, the largest general hospital in HCMC, is also treating a 49-year-old male patient for a severe case of the disease. The man was transferred from the south central province of Binh Thuan and has a history of diabetes, while the dead woman had obesity. Both conditions have been identified among factors that would put one under higher risk of infection or complications from the disease.

    Dung said neither of the current patients caught the flu from a hospital and the two cases are not related....

    On June 1, 16 people at the city's Tu Du Hospital, the biggest obstetrics hospital in southern Vietnam, also tested positive with influenza A/H1N1 after a woman infected with the virus was admitted for a gynecological surgery.

    The hospital subsequently quarantined more than 80 patients and staff members that it deemed at risk and isolated the Laparoscopy Department for three days for disinfection. The situation has been stated to be under control.
