Swine flu claims fifth local victim

The death toll from A(H1N1) influenza – commonly known as swine flu – has risen to five following the death of a 20-year-old man last week, said Sok Touch, director of the Communicable Diseases Control Department at the Ministry of Health. As of Thursday, 472 people had been infected with the virus, including 28 in the past week, according to the ministry’s Web site. Cambodia’s first confirmed swine flu death occurred on September 27, when a 41-year-old woman succumbed to the disease.
