In Brief: Swine flu taking greater local toll

At least 46 people in the Kingdom have contracted swine flu, health officials have told the Post. Cambodians made up the 15 most recently reported cases of influenza A (H1N1) as of September 6, according to Sok Touch, director of the Department of Communicable Disease Control at the Ministry of Health. Particularly concerning is that locals who have not been travelling have been affected, Sok Touch said. The ministry has warned members of the public to stay at home if they develop flu-like symptoms and call the Ministry of Health hotline for further advice at 012 488 981 or 089 669 567.
