6 confirmed cases of swine flu in TT

Friday, October 4, 2013

The Ministry of Health in Trinidad and Tobago has received information from the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) laboratory of six confirmed local cases of the H1N1 or Swine Flu.

"In light of these new confirmations, locally, along with increased influenza activity in the Caribbean region at this time, the Ministry wishes to assure the public that all systems for response to influenza cases are in place at our local institutions and advise that citizens follow the instructions given to them by medical professionals" said the Ministry of Health in a release.

Health Minister, Dr Fuad Khan has called on residents not to panic in the wake of the report.
"Now in order to decrease the level of panic that may set into this country as we see there are various headlines on it, I want to assure the public that this H1N1 is called Swine Flu, not Bird Flu. H1N1 has been around in Trinidad and Tobago since 2009 . We have been having cases since 2009 so this is nothing new that is occurring at this time. I do believe what would have triggered the fear and concern was the neighbouring countries. Barbados has had I think one death as a result of H1N1" he said.
