40 Greeks Dead from H1N1 Virus

flu virusThe flu virus (H1N1) is showing an alarming upsurge. There have been 40 fatalities due to the virus, two of which were small children, while a total of 143 people appear to be infected and have been hospitalized in the intensive care unit (ICU). At the moment 59 people are being hospitalized in the ICU.

Furthermore, according to recent news, three more people have been admitted in the ICU (two in the Venizelio hospital in Crete and one in Sotiria Hospital in Athens) and it is quite possible that they have the flu virus. However, in order to confirm this information, the hospitals need to conduct more laboratory testing.

Experts from the Hellenic Center for Disease Control and Prevention (KEELPNO) estimate that the flu wave tends to reach its highest point and that it will gradually start to subside within the next few weeks. Meanwhile, meteorologists have predicted good weather for the next days, which is considered a positive conjuncture that will help decrease the power of the flu virus.

However, doctors indicate that obese patients or people with chronic diseases that are presenting flu-like symptoms must immediately take antiviral drugs to treat the disease without waiting for laboratory results to confirm if they have the virus.

  • Leftist treason

    The leftist NGOs/media all anyone that says this “racist” but the statistically reality is the huge spike in rare diseases in Greece these last the last few is primarily due to the huge influx of illegals from third world nations.

    Our leftists buffoons and foreign “human rights’ ngos are literally supporting the deaths of Greek citizens with their non-existent immigration policies.

    A third world hooker with that spreads aids (effectively murder) is called a “victim” by these leftist “human rights” imbeciles. These far leftist imbeciles literally protested when Greece tried to force hookers (including Greeks ones) to check for diseases that kill their johns. An inversion of morality.

  • Polycrates

    H1N1 has reappeared in many parts of the world. It is a highly contagious respiratory influenza. What is a concern as you point out is the arrival of other regional contagions being brought into the country by “migrants” “refugees” and “Immigrants”. Nothing has been implemented to protect society from exposure as it takes 2 to 4 weeks before some symptoms appear. By that time exposure to an infected individual can be hundreds or thousands. It would be too little, too late if Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever and other nasties were let lose in Europe because the authorities chose to open the nations doors to illegals instead of safeguarding their population. Just ask Pericles.

    Throw all illegal immigrants out of Greece. They are bacterians. Greeks have the right to protect themselves, their life etc from illegal immigrants who have virus. They are poor, stupid, making 3 – 6 children because they don’t have future, infected, pedoshitiphiles, calling Europeans .s.holes ( that what islamist are doing ), then coming to our border illegal. Greeks are tired.
