Two die of flu in Sultanate
MUSCAT Two Omanis suffering from H1NI flu have died, the H1N1 Control and Follow-Up Committee announced on Thursday.

This is the first time the pandemic has turned fatal in the Sultanate.

The first casualty, a 39-year-old citizen who was suffering from a chronic heart disease, died in Sultan Qaboos Hospital in Salalah while the second person, 60-year-old citizen, who was suffering from blood pressure, diabetes and chronic liver inflammation, died in Royal Hospital.

The flu pandemic has forced the authorities to postpone the reopening of schools in the Sultanate.

The spread of flu has cast a cloud over the Holy Month of Ramadan, with a plunge in the number of people going on pilgrimage to the Holy City of Makkah.
