Laboratory tests show that the A/H1N1 swine flu virus has caused 53 deaths in Poland so far, according to the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate. According to the office's spokesman Jan Bodnar, the A/H1N1 virus has been found in over 1,400 patients, but in most cases the symptoms are mild and the patients do not develop any complications.

The new flu is most dangerous to those who suffer from chronic diseases and have significant immunity deficiency problems, Bodnar said. Deaths occur mainly as a result of post-flu complications such as respiratory failure.
According to Prof. Andrzej Zieliński, the national epidemiology consultant, the number of respiratory failure cases is the highest in the past two decades.
