Singapore : H1N1 death toll rises to 74 with death of six last week

An article from Asia One :

" Six people infected with influenza A (H1N1) virus died last week, raising the nation's total influenza casualties since July 2010 to 74. All six patients were male, unvaccinated, with ages ranging from two to 84.

A total of 183 patients aged from two to 89 years old have been confirmed to have severe seasonal influenza infection in the last two weeks alone, of those, only 10 specimens had received vaccination, according to Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Beside the typical influenza symptoms, the outbreak this winter so far also seemed to have been the source of severe coughing and even the loss of vocal cord functions, CDC said."
