35 cases of H1N1 reported in Thani province; 4 fatalities

THAILAND- The four deaths were in Muang, Ban Phue, Si That and Ban Dung districts. This prompted the provincial health authorities to host a workshop to brush-up the H1N1 flu knowledge of 150 health volunteers at the Udon Thani City Municipality office yesterday.

Mayor Itthipol Triwattanasuwan, who presided over the workshop's opening ceremony, said the event organised by the municipality and the provincial health office, was to help the volunteers screen flu patients and campaign for public awareness of the disease in order to help people protect themselves from the virus.

Provincial health official Dr Smith Prasunnakarn urged people with high fever, headache, muscular pain, sore throat and possible vomiting and diarrhoea to separate themselves from others and see a doctor immediately.
