H1N1 Update in Malaysia - Week 04/2010 (24 - 30 January 2010)

The latest on the situation in Malaysia. It looks obvious that there is an increasing trend comparing to the report from the Ministry of Health last week. This weeks report with my translation :

"Within the last week (24 to 30 January 2010) a total of 357 new patients with symptoms of Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) has been admitted to hospital for treatment and while 337 cases have been discharged. The remaining cases that are still being treated across the country until the last day of the week 04/2010 (January 30, 2010) is 345 cases in total 42 government hospitals. Of these, only 4 patients or 1.2% is a case of Influenza A (H1N1) which is confirmed through laboratory tests. Until January 30, 2010, the cummulative number of cases which are positive influenza A (H1N1) is 12,389. For your information, there is 1 case of H1N1 currently being treated in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The case is a child age less than 5 years old.

There are three (3) ILI cluster cases that has been reported throughout the week in 3 separate schools, namely a high school, Al-Ittihadiah, Kuala Lipis, Pahang (involving 3 students) while two (2) in SK Pengkalan Berangan, Marang (involving 7 students) and Maahad Tahfiz Darul Iman, Tok Jiring, Terengganu (involving 17 students).
