68 People Die of Swine Flu in Mexico

The Mexican government has sent thousands of Tamiflu units to pharmacies to boost supply in the country.


Mexico has seen a sharp jump in cases of the virus H1N1, popularly known as swine flu, killing 68 people so far this flu season, the country's health ministry reported Thursday.

The overall number of flu cases and deaths has also risen, but the H1N1 statistics are striking. The Mexican government has detected 945 cases of H1N1 this season, compared with just four cases and no deaths last season.

But the Mexican government emphasized schools should not shutter their doors due to the flu.

"We are not facing an epidemic that would justify closing schools," Education Minister Aurelio Nuno said at a news conference this week.

The World Health Organization recently said that there has also been an increase in H1N1 cases in the United States and Canada.

In 2009, the WHO declared swine flu the first global flu pandemic in 40 years after the virus started in Mexico and spread across the globe.

Swine flu symptoms include high fever, unusual tiredness, headache, running nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, cough, loss of appetite, aching muscles, diarrhea or vomiting. Most swine flu cases are mild, but children, elderly and pregnant women are at risk of complications.

Mexico's flu season usually lasts from October to March.
