Malaysia : 73 New H1N1 Cases Reported Nationwide Yesterday

I have been waiting for the latest H1N1 update from the Ministry of Health at their website from 11:00am (local time) and until now (it's 6:30pm) there is no such update...but suddenly I found this article from Bernama with the latest report.

I wonder how come and what happened?

" Seventy-three new Influenza A (H1N1) cases were detected nationwide, until yesterday afternoon, raising the total number of cases to 13,962.

Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr Mohd Ismail Merican however, said no deaths were recorded, since the number of deaths remained at 82.

According to Dr Mohd Ismail, 616 Influenza Like Illness (ILI) were being treated in hospitals nationwide and of that total, 92 cases had tested positive for H1N1.

"Ten cases are being treated in the intensive care unit while eight have high risk factors," he said in a statement here on Friday.

Dr Mohd Ismail reminded the public that the H1N1 pandemic was still active and advised those with symptoms of ILI to immediately seek treatment from the nearest clinic, adding that the public should continue to be cautious and take preventive measures.

"Those with ILI symptoms like fever, cough, cold or throat pain should stay away from public functions and public areas," he said."
