Georgian Ministry of Healthcare doesn’t confirm death of swine flu

2009-12-10 15:05

Alexander Kvitashvili, the Minister of Healthcare disclaims messages stating that death of a 40-year old woman from Sagarejo was caused by swine flu.


"The death of the woman in Sagarejo has nothing to do with A/H1N1 virus", he announced.

He explained that every year dozens of people die of pneumonia complications, and connecting it with swine flu isn't reasonable.

"The woman had a very acute bilateral pneumonia and, unfortunately, she turned to doctor too late. So, we have no reasons to say it was A/H1N1 virus. There have been no fatal outcomes, and I hope, there will be none," the Minister said.

Yesterday Georgia times reported of a 40-year old woman called Lali Darbaiseli, who died of unknown disease. She caught viral flu from her son, who had been to a chess tournament in Turkey and returned ill.

According to the doctors of a local hospital, the late had the same symptoms as her son, but she developed an acute form of pneumonia. She was delivered in Tbilisi hospital #1 in a bad condition, and died despite all the efforts of doctors.

Though local doctors cannot rule out she was killed by the swine flu virus, the National Centre for Disease Control don't confirm the information and believe she died of pneumonia.

No laboratory tests to find out the final diagnosis were made. The son of the deceased recovered and feels satisfactory.
