H1N1 Follow UP : Death Strikes School

Today the ministry of health has announced the death of 9 years old boy after his infection by H1N1 , the boy is a student in a private school in Helwan governorate.

Our H1N1 death officially is 5.

For the record I do not know if the boy died because of H1N1 or because of medical error , it turned out that the boy’s condition deteriorated when a doctor gave him a Voltaren shot in his private practice Thursday !! Yes Voltaren and do not ask how on earth and heaven you would give Voltaren shot to 9 years old !!!??

The poor boy could not handle Voltaren especially he was too weak “and even if he was healthy” , his condition turned from bad to worse to a coma !! He died today morning !!

It seems that the boy was suffering from H1N1 and the stupid doctor thought it was something else and he gave him Voltaren.

I am 25 years old girl and I do not take Voltaren when I am sick because it is too strong , in fact my doctor does not prefer because it weakens the patients except in very severe conditions !!

The ministry is running an autopsy and an investigation to see what happened.

  1. i am a doctor and there is nothing about voltaren to give to a child as long as he adjust the dose to suit him . and i never read a paper saying that voltaren is not taken to a feverish child . and a diagnosis of h1n1 in egypt i guess is harder than treating it .. go see the fever hospitals .. we as doctors will not transfere any feverish patient to a fever hospital or we can bring a recorded message in our clinics insted of us . all the patients are typical of h1n1 infection . selection is based upon a severly ill patient or a deteriorating case or an unresponded case. and the majority will take medication and stay home .. and that what the doctor did .
