Trinidad & Tobago : Swine Flu still a concern

An article from News Day :

" THE Ministry of Health has issued a public advisory regarding the re-emergence of swine flu in this country.

When the flu first entered the country in 2009, the ministry launched a massive public awareness campaign, warning persons who suspected they had the potentially fatal flu to seek immediate medical attention.

This time around, a low-key approach seems to have been adopted, as the ministry issued its advisory via email on March 29 and has yet to hold a press conference about the suspected outbreak.

“The Ministry of Health wishes to remind the national community that once a virus such as the Pandemic Influenza A / H1N1 2009 enters a national community it remains in circulation within the population.

However the public health sector has been prepared since February 2009 to deal with any cases that require medical attention at any public health facility,” the statement said."
