Male diagnosed with A/H1N1 flu died in Galati

A 56-year-old male from Galati diagnosed with A/H1N1 flu died on Sunday in the Intensive Care Unit of the local “Sfantul Andrei” Emergency Hospital. Doctors say the man had not suffered from other diseases that might have worsened his condition, yet, he came to hospital all too late. Mediafax quoted Dr. Valentin Boldea, director at the Galati Public Health Department, saying this is the first reported death from A1N1 flu in Galati. According to the doctor, the patient had been transferred in serious condition from the Pneumophthisiology Hospital to the emergency hospital on Feb. 14.

The Cantacuzino Institute in Bucharest confirmed the A/H1N1 flu diagnosis on Feb. 16. “The male presented himself at the hospital when his disease was in advanced stage. His wife got prophylactic treatment with Tamiflu, and the other contacts have been vaccinated prophylactically,” Dr. Boldea also said. Three cases of A/H1N1 flew have been reported in Galati this year, after the virus was confirmed in a 74-year-old woman who hasn’t suffered from any illness-related complications.
