" A 15-year old junior high school student died of influenza A (H1N1) three days ago at a northern Taiwan medical center, the first such case in Taiwan in three months, health authorities said Saturday.
The new death puts the total number of H1N1 fatalities in Taiwan at 42, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) under the Department of Health.
The centers said the girl developed a cough, sore throat and bellyache April 27, but only sought medical attention at a local clinic a week later when she began suffering tachypnoea.
On May 4, the patient was transferred to a regional medical center for treatment for tachpynoea and vomiting and was unconscious. The doctors tried cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) , but she died the next day due to kidney failure. She had a record of diabetes, the CDC said.
Taiwan has recorded a total of 922 H1N1 cases since July 2009, and 80 percent of those who died had records of cardiovascular, liver, or kidney disease or other disorders, the CDC said. Forty-one of those who died had not been vaccinated against H1N1, it said.
Taiwan has touted its success in fighting against H1N1 with a national immunization program under which 25 percent of its total population has been immunized."
