Singapore reports first H1N1 death this year

Via Asia News Network :

" A 77-year-old man died from H1N1 influenza virus infection on January 19 - the first reported case in Singapore this year.

Mohd Lazim Kalang was admitted to Singapore General Hospital on January 15 after his children saw that he had a high fever and had trouble breathing.

The former taxi driver was then found to have a lung infection and was hospitalised for treatment.

He was later transferred to the intensive care unit after his condition worsened. He died four days later.

Ministry of Health (MOH) figures from early this month show more than 75 per cent of patients with influenza now are infected with the H1N1 strain."
