H1N1 infection rate slowing, govt says

The number of people infected with the A(H1N1) influenza virus, commonly known as swine flu, rose to 570 in the past week, but public health officials note that the rate has slowed, and have credited awareness campaigns for the trend. New figures released by the Ministry of Health’s Communicable Diseases Control Department this week report three new cases during the seven days prior to Wednesday. The department’s director, Dr Sok Touch, said the low figures were the result of increased knowledge about how to avoid infection. CHEANG SOHKA
