Philippines Reports 2,668 Cases and 3 Deaths from Swine Flu

Written By David D'Angelo on Monday, July 20, 2009 | 7/20/2009

As of July 9, 2009, the DOH has confirmed 2,668 cases and 3 deaths in the Philippines, with the affected group aged between 5 months and 71 years old, the median being 17 years old.

Department of Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III reiterates the boosting of one's immune system is still the best defense against the virus. With proper diet, exercise, vitamins and vaccinations, one can help your body defend against the virus and other illnesses especially during this time of the year. The seasonal flu is also something one should not take lightly as it can dramatically bring down one's resistance to viruses and other illnesses.

"We want to make it clear that high-risk groups, once they have the flu symptoms, should immediately go to their doctor. They should not wait for their symptoms to worsen because they are prone to many infections other than the novel virus such as our seasonal flu strains," Duque clarified.
