At least 11 dead in H1N1 flu outbreak in northern Chile


SANTIAGO, July 4 (Xinhua) -- At least 11 people have been killed in an H1N1 flu outbreak at northern Chile's Tarapaca region, Health Minister Jaime Manalich said Thursday. Medical Association President Enrique Paris said the average infection ratio in Tarapaca had climbed to 148 in 100,000 people, six times higher than the national average of 24 in 100,000.

   Paris suggested postponing or canceling the upcoming traditional Fiesta de La Tirana festival to prevent a massive spread of the infection. The festival, to be held on July 15-17, is an annual religious gathering, which attracts more than 200,000 visitors each year.

Manalich said Friday he would travel to the infected areas, 1,900 km north of Santiago, to direct the fight against the epidemic. He also said the government would soon transport 115,000 vaccines to the affected region.
