MANILA, Philippines – Two more people with the Influenza A(H1N1) virus in the country have died, bringing the total number of deaths related to the disease to three, an official of the Department of Health (DoH) said.

However, it was not immediately clear whether the fatalities died because of A(H1N1), Arnel Rivera, officer-in-charge of the DoH operation center for A(H1N1) told

One of the casualties, a 19-year-old male also had asthma aside from A(H1N1) while the other, a 74-year-old man, also had emphysema, Rivera said.

The country’s first A(H1N1)-related death, a female employee of the House of Representatives, had other illnesses before she acquired the novel flu virus. She died in late June.

The two new fatalities were among the 2,668 confirmed A(H1N1) cases as of late last week, Rivera said.

Of the total number of cases, 2,543 or 95 percent have recovered, he said.
