Swine Flu Returns to Ecuador

QUITO – Ecuadorian health authorities announced three confirmed cases of AH1NI flu virus and another 184 people suspected of having the disease in the northern province of Imbabura, according to Ecuador-TV.

Yolanda Checa, director of San Vicente de Paul Hospital in Ibarra, the provincial capital, said that “we are not talking about an outbreak” of the disease, which caused the deaths of 200 people in Ecuador between 2009 and May of this year.

Those confirmed of having the disease “are isolated cases,” Checa said, asking that citizens observe the prevention measures recommended by health authorities to ward off the flu virus.

Ecuadorian authorities have announced that the country is prepared to deal with the swine flu, an illness that is seasonal in Ecuador.

The cold season that affects the Ecuadorian Andes is one of the factors that has spurred the reappearance of the disease, according to health personnel. EFE
