Swine flu in Malaysia

M’sia sees 6 new flu deaths — now to 62

MALAYSIA’S Health Ministry says six more people diagnosed with swine flu have died, raising the country’s death toll related to the virus to 62 (out of the world’s total of around 200, or slightly more if figures are updated). Malaysia has a population of about 28 million.

India, with a population of over a billion, has only 17 victims: The Times of India

Malaysia and Singapore seem like having more of their share of flu deaths? Why? Just curious this is so.

  1. Not sure about Msia, but there’s lots of awareness of swine flu in Singapore. If it’s climate, then Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia would fall into this category.

  2. The obvious answer would be the weather and their initial lack of response to the problem.
