 The rising number of A/H1N1 flu cases was not unusual since other countries also encountered the same problem, said Doctor Prat Boonyavongvirot, permanent secretary of the Health Ministry.

Meanwhile, Doctor Prat said the new virus could pose higher risk to children under five years old, pregnant women, elders with an age of over 65 years old, and people with low immunity, or those with chronic diseases such as lung, heart and kidney diseases.
