This time the victim is a man of fifty years of Civitanova Marche Macerata, which begun to manifest symptoms after a trip to India. The test confirmed the infection H1N1 virus. After admission to hospital of Ancona Towers, the man was transferred beneath rather severe – to – San Gerardo di Monza, to undergo treatment for extracorporeal oxygenation.
For Gianni Rezza, epidemiologist Institute of Health, the case should not cause alarm, because the virus of swine is yet circulating in the world. “Import” infection overseas, as happened to 54-year ancient Luke, can happen, but “The condition now that is very dissimilar from that of final year – described Dr. Rezza – these cases are very sporadic, which infrequently lead to severe symptoms. Such cases, but also “native” can also arise in summer, and this also applies to seasonal viruses”.
Therefore, there is nothing to angst about: the man has developed complications because it was already suffering from numerous serious illnesses, including Hypertensive heart sickness, severe obesity and diabetes. Rezza suggests anyway preventing infection with the precautionary ever recommended avoiding the common virus flu: wash your hands often and ignore gathering places. For at-risk groups (children, elderly and sick) is strongly recommended vaccination for common seasonal influenza and the H1N1 virus.
