US plans on how to distribute swine flu vaccine

The New York Times has a story on how government is planning to distribute vaccine for the Influenza AH1N1.

Buti pa sa Amerika, nagpa-plano na sila kung paano, kanino at kailan ibibigay ang vaccine laban sa swine flu, kahit wala pang dumarating. Sa atin, wala nang balita mula sa Department of Health (DOH) tungkol sa swine flu, maliban sa panaka-nakang pag-amin ng mga DOH officials na naka-base sa probinsya na sila din, mayroon nang swine flu.
Ang huli kong balita (mga dalawang linggo na ang nakalilipas), isasama na lang ang bilang ng mga nagkakasakit ng swine flu sa mga tinatamaan ng ordinary flu. Kung kailan dumarami ang nagkakasakit at namamatay sa swine flu, saka naging mas lalong mahirap kumuha ng datos ang taong bayan.

He is not calling for a transition government, Gonzales says. But he wants people to discuss it, looking at the first Edsa uprising and the changes that the revolutionary government, led by then President Corazon Aquino, managed to institute.

Gonzales discussed the idea recently, during a press briefing with the Foreign Correspondents’ Association of the Philippines. Continue reading

RP A(H1N1) fatality rate at 0.06%

Although the health department has listed more than 1,800 cases of Influenza A(H1N1), only one has died so far. The fatality rate for the Philippines stands at 0.06%, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said in a congressional hearing on A(H1N1) last Monday, July 5.
Still, World Health Organizations (WHO) statistics say there were young, healthy people WITH NO UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITION who died of Influenza A(H1N1). It’s still not clear how and why, but the WHO said that in those cases, the progression of the disease was rapid and by the time they were brought for treatment they were already in a serious condition.
My notes on the congressional hearing last Monday. Continue reading
