Dear Friends,

As of May 31, 2009, Department of Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III reported that there are 46 new Cases Under Observation (CUOs) who all have pending laboratory results. Since May 1, 2009, the DOH has monitored a total of 285 Cases Under Observation (CUOs). Of these 16 have been confirmed positive for Influenza A(H1N1), 64 have pending laboratory results, and 205 have been discarded since they are negative for A(H1N1). (http://www.doh.gov.ph/node/2300/Update No. 29 - Duque Update on the Influenza A(H1N1) Situation in the Philippines)

In their latest report dated May 29, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported 2,120 new cases and 4 deaths. The new deaths were from
Canada, Mexico, and the USA. There are now a total of 15,510 cases and 99 deaths (CFR = 0.6%) from 53 reporting countries. New countries who have a confirmed Influenza A(H1N1) case were Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Slovakia, and Uruguay.

It is considered prudent for people who are ill to delay international travel and for people developing symptoms following international
travel to seek medical attention, in line with guidance from national authorities. Individuals are advised to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water on a regular basis and should seek medical attention if they develop any symptoms of influenza-like illness.

Most people who consume a well-balanced, nutritious diet and take care of their bodies usually have a healthy immune system. However, most of us undergo periods when our natural resistance is challenged. Stress, occasional sleeplessness, fatigue, and a poor diet can diminish the strength of our immune system. This can be further challenged by international travel and commerce. During these times, you may have heightened concerns about your immune health and how you can help support a healthy immune system.
