    Thank you for that information.

    Yes, if they have to do an emergency c-section, the prognosis is most likely very dismal. There have been two other emergency C-sections in Texas secondary to swine flu. Neither of the women survived.

    Una mujer embarazada, de 20 años de edad, sería la cuarta víctima de la influenza A H1N1. La misma falleció anoche en el hospital de Itauguá. El doctor Diego Gamarra, director de Salud, indicó que en las próximas horas se confirmaría la versión, una vez que se tenga el informe laboratorial sobre la causa del fallecimiento de la mujer.

    Ante la gravedad, los médicos procedieron a una cesárea para sacarle la criatura que se encuentra en observación en terapia intensiva. La joven trabajaba como empleada doméstica de una familia, algunos de cuyos integrantes dieron positivo a la influenza.

    The last fatal case occurred in Iturraspe Hospital in Cordoba city of San Francisco. The youngest of 26 years died a few weeks after being placed and give birth to a bebe.

    A woman of 26 years became the first fatal case of swine flu in the province of Cordoba, with this death and 56 people were killed across the country as a result of this disease, according to official figures.

    The person died yesterday, about 21:00, at the Hospital of the city Iturraspe cordobesa San Francisco, a few weeks after being placed and give birth to a bebe.

    Diagnosis of swine influenza in the deceased patient had been confirmed last Tuesday by the Institute Malbrán and for the moment, it is unknown how they are spread.

    "This woman was admitted with this pregnancy to term, but with a flu-like box. When subjected to a caesarean section and respiratory complication was a bilateral pneumonia," he said.

    The specialist said that "the baby is well, is with his grandparents, was two days in neonatology, but without complications."

    I do not ever recall hearing about several pregnant women dying from seasonal flu. I am sure that it does happen because any kind of influenza can kill but, if it happened this often, surely we would have heard about it.

    There were several early reports on this woman's death in which they gave no details other than sex and age. They seemed to be very reluctant to divulge the fact that she was pregnant. So, this was an emergency C-section, perhaps? They don't say...

    Quote from www.palmbeachpost.com

    She died, but her baby survived.

    That's all public health officials will say about a pregnant woman who, at 25, became Palm Beach County's first swine flu-associated fatality and the state's seventh.

    The young mother died June 27, the Florida Department of Health said Thursday. The announcement came on a day when President Obama told state leaders at a flu preparedness summit to plan for a widespread outbreak this fall.

    While the novel H1N1 flu strain is considered mild as influenza goes, it can cause serious and life-threatening complications for some.

    It has the potential to seriously burden the health system if its growth continues, Hopkins stressed.

    "The vast majority of people infected with this virus will do just fine. A few days of feeling rotten, and then they get better on their own," he said. "But let's just say one in 1,000 who gets infected gets sick enough to be hospitalized. If you have a million infected people, you have 1,000 hospitalized, and all of a sudden it begins to look like a big deal."

    The state is tracking details of the confirmed cases. Its data suggest that 55 of those infected were health care workers and 17 were pregnant women.

    It's unclear why pregnant women seem to develop more serious complications from the illness.

    In May, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, in a weekly journal, published the case histories of three pregnant women, suggesting that the changes to a woman's body that occur with pregnancy - including changes in her heart, lungs and immune systems - were what made the women vulnerable.

    The CDC has recommended that pregnant women be given Tamiflu and eventually a vaccine when one becomes available.

    This is a translation. Sadly, it appears that neither mother nor baby survived.

    She was a teacher. Because the CDC has made specific recommendations for women in education as well as in health care, it appears that they recognize that some occupations are going to put pregnant women more at risk for being exposed to influenza on the job. This unfortunate woman is not the first teacher to die of swine flu since the pandemic started.

    Quote from www.flutrackers.com

    Fourth victim was a teacher of children

    Woman with six months' gestation died in the Maria Auxiliadora.

    A professor of early education and child of six months in the womb who had joined the list of victims of fatal influenza AH1N1 in our country. Alejandrina Lopez Magali Lopez, 27 years, died yesterday morning at the Maria Auxiliadora Hospital, San Juan de Miraflores.

    She was hospitalized on Tuesday with a picture of pneumonia. Her husband Rafael Huacho ensures that doctors recently told him the diagnosis of influenza when he died. Huacho is outraged by the lack of information received in hospital and especially the loss of his son.
    Magali Lopez taught about 31 children between 3 and 4 years at school Our Lady of Reconciliation, located in Pamplona Alta, San Juan de Miraflores. Counted according to a family, taught until Friday, the day began to feel ill.

    Quote from insidecostarica.com

    A pregnant woman who was carrying twins died Saturday morning from the AH1N1 flu virus, becoming the fifth death from the virus since it was it was first reported in Costa Rica on April 24.

    The 25 year old woman, who was in her fifth month of gestation, died at 1:30pm Saturday at the Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos (intenside care unit) of the hospital San Juan de Dios (HSJD).

    The ministerio de Salud reports that the two fetuses died hours before the woman succummed to the virus.

    The ministra de Salud, María Luisa Ávila, explained that the woman also suffered from obesity.

    "She got all the medical attention and follow up at the hospital, but due to her pregnancy and obesity, they added to the complications and high risk for patients with the virus", said Ávila.

    The woman's husband said that his wife had had a high fever for five days continuous until he took her to the Solón Núñez clinic on June 2 when she was barely able to breathe. Roberto Gaitán Muñoz said that the same day she was transferred to the HSJD, where she was kept in isolation in the intensive care unit.

    Salud officials say the woman died from Septic shock, a serious medical condition caused by decreased tissue perfusion and oxygen delivery as a result of infection and sepsis, related to her AH1N1 viral infection.

    Yes, it is a little hard to follow the translation. I mean it looks like it says the father is more upset about the death of the fetus than the mother. But perhaps I miss understand because the translation is so bad.

    Why is the news coverage about this South American outbreak so anemic? It sounds as if they are having a ****of a time down there. Everything piece of info about what is going on down that I have seen has been posted on this site. Not a WORD in my local newspaper or the WSJ, both of which I read cover to cover just about everyday. Wall to wall MJ coverage for over a week and not a word about all these pregnant women and children dying down there. OMG!

    It is not just happening in South America, but here too (posts 15 and 19), and it's summer...

    Why are they not reporting it? Good question.

    Yes, especially since the reports were bordering on hysterical back in April and May BEFORE there were any deaths. I don't want hysterics, hype or ignorance, I just want the FACTs.
