Gulf state's health ministry confirms two further fatalities of woman in 60s, man in 40s.
Two new swine flu deaths were reported by Kuwaiti health chiefs on Sunday, bringing the total number of victims in the Gulf state to 19.
In a statement, the health ministry said that the first patient was a woman in her 60s who was admitted into hospital on October 24 suffering from high fever, difficulty breathing, and bronchitis.
She had a prior brain injury and a problem with blood circulation, and due to her critical condition she was admitted to ICU and medication was administered. She passed away on Saturday, reported KUNA News Agency.
The second case was a man in his 40s who was admitted to hospital on October 22 with high fever, high blood pressure, diabetes, lung damage, and irregular blood circulation. He also died on Saturday.
Why is it that all the GCC countries are announcing their swine flu figures except the UAE?
Amazing, everyone who died form H1N1 had other serious illnesses. This is most of the population of Kuwait. When will the vaccinations start ? Shame on MoH !
