More schools close as Hong Kong records two more swine-flu deaths Health News

Hong Kong - Two more people have died of swine flu in Hong Kong, bringing its total fatalities to 18 and leading to the closure of more schools, health officials said Thursday. The deaths came as the government continued to exercise strict measures to halt the spread of the virus, closing 25 schools with confirmed H1N1 infections over the past three days. The latest victims were two men, aged 63 and 34, both of whom had other health problems. On Monday, the head of the World Health Organization, Margaret Chan, advised the city to relax its measure against the spread of the virus and instead focus on reducing the number of serious cases. However, the densely populated former British colony is particularly sensitive to virus outbreaks after the severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, outbreak killed 299 people and infected around 1,800 in 2003. The city has seen 23,898 cases of swine flu, of which 97 have been classified as serious.

Even more positive for H1N1 vaccine makers is that the ordinary flu shot actually makes you more at risk at getting the H1N1 flu.

Seasonal flu shot increases A/H1N1 flu risk: study

www.chinaview.cn 2009-09-24 08:31:27  

    OTTAWA, Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- Preliminary results from some studies have found that seasonal flu shot may increase the risk of catching A/H1N1 flu, Canadian scientists said Wednesday.

    About 2,000 people from four Canadian provinces were involved in the separate studies, which showed that people who had received the seasonal flu vaccine in the past were more likely to get sick with the H1N1 virus, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) said in a report Wednesday.

    Researchers know that, theoretically, when people are exposed to bacteria or a virus, it can stimulate the immune system to create antibodies that facilitate the entry of another strain of the virus. Dengue fever is one example, scientists say.

    But experts stressed that these are very preliminary results and need to be validated.

    "This is some evidence that has been floated; it hasn't been validated yet, it's very preliminary," cautioned Dr. Don Low, microbiologist in chief at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

    But these are nevertheless very important data to help guide policy decision, as the time comes for seasonal flu shot, he said.

    This latest finding raises questions about the order in which to get flu shots. Across Canada, public health authorities are fiercely debating the idea of shortening, delaying or scrapping their seasonal flu vaccination campaign in favor of mass inoculation against A/H1N1.

    The main reason is because A/H1N1 may be the dominant strain of influenza circulating when the fall flu season hits, meaning it could be a waste of time and resources to mount a seasonal flu vaccine campaign.
