Trinidad’s Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh says there is a crisis in the outbreak of H1N1 or swine flu in Trinidad especially in the southern part of the country where there have been three reported deaths.
Deyalsingh made this disclosure to the media after the official opening of the Sangre Grande Enhanced Health Centre at Ojoe Road, Sangre Grande yesterday.
The Minister of Health confirmed that three deaths have been recorded as a result of H1N1 and noted there are many more lab-confirmed cases.
He advised the population of Trinidad and Tobago to get the influenza vaccine as it is being offered at the nation’s health institutions free of charge.
He said some people are lackadaisical as they never seem to seek the interest of their own health.
