 Swine Flu Death Toll Stands at 816: WHO

Swine flu has caused the deaths of 816 people around the world, with most of the victims in the Americas region, according to data published Monday by the World Health Organisation.

In the Americas, 707 people have been confirmed to have died from infections of the A(H1N1) virus.

No death has been reported in the rest of Africa.

Meanwhile, several countries and territories have reported first cases since the previous WHO bulletin on July 6, including Afghanistan, Andorra, Belize, Bhutan, Botswana, Haiti, the Seychelles, Solomon Islands and Sudan.

Overall, 134,503 cases of infections have been reported to the WHO, but the UN health agency added that since countries are no longer required to test and report individual cases, the figure reported "understates" the actual caseload.
