Thailand - H1N1 death toll rises to 218

Via Bangkok Post, not much details on the fatalities given but it's clearly evident that number's are rising in Thailand. From the last update which I have posted about Thailand and H1N1, the fatalities rose by 6 to give a total of 218 lives lost:

"Six more people died last week of H1N1 flu, bringing the death toll since the outbreak of the disease on April 28 last year to 218, the Public Health Ministry announced on Monday.

Against the target of 2 million, only 404,983 people in risk groups have been vaccinated against the type A (H1N1) influenza.

The ministry has campaigned for people in five risk groups, including medical staff and those sufferring from chronic diseases, to get vaccinated."

It should be clear to all of us in South East Asia right now that we are indeed in the mist of the second wave and all precautions must be taken to ensure the fatalities don't rise.
