Deadly flu outbreak hits Zimbabwe

An article from The Sunday Mail :

" A LIFE-THREATENING flu bug with symptoms similar to those of the deadly H1N1 virus has hit all of the country’s 10 provinces affecting thousands of people.

Confirming the outbreak last week, Dr Portia Manangazira of the Epidemiology and Disease Control Unit in the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare said the flu bug might be a combination of H1N1 (swine flu) and H3N2 (common cold flu).

“There is a spread of a combination of H1N1 and H3N2 countrywide but cases of common cold flu are usually reported between May and September,” said Dr Manangazira. She urged all those who show signs and symptoms of cold to seek medication as soon as possible as common cold flu can also be deadly."
