H1N1 outbreak kills 2 in Mexico: Official

MEXICO CITY (AFP) - An outbreak of A(H1N1) claimed the lives of two people - 19 and 21 years old - in Mexico's capital in the first weeks of the year, health authorities said on Saturday. The health secretary of Mexico's Federal District, Armando Ahued, said there were 138 confirmed cases of the flu, including 110 cases of A(H1N1), a novel strain of the disease that was first detected in 2009. Nationwide, 333 cases of the virus have been confirmed, the federal government's health secretary said earlier in the week, without saying how many deaths had been attributed to it. The latest victims were a 19-year-old and a 21-year-old who died in separate hospitals. 'The tendency toward an increase in flu cases is normal because January is the month with the lowest temperatures,' said Ahued adding that the incidence of flu should begin to subside in February.
