Romanian Man Diagnosed With AH1N1 Dies In Hospital

The man had been admitted to the hospital early this year and was later diagnosed with the AH1N1 virus.

"The man was in intensive care and died last night. He had been diagnosed with the AH1N1 flu virus by the Cantacuzino Institute in Bucharest and had other severe infectious complications. He had been placed on life support for the past ten days and his condition was very bad," the Iasi public health department said in a press release.

Doctors said the man had returned from a vacation in Egypt late-last year and is likely to have contacted the flu there.

Two other people in Iasi have been diagnosed with the AH1N1 virus but their state of health is good.

Romania's Health Ministry said last week the country is not facing a flu epidemic and the four cases of infection with the AH1N1 and AH3N2 viruses registered between January 3 and January 9, 2011 have been isolated.
