WELLINGTON, July 21 (Xinhua) -- Guam has reported the first death case of influenza A/H1N1, the Marianas Variety online reported on Tuesday.
Guam's Department of Public Health and Social Services said a 26-year-old female with a pre-existing medical condition died of complications on Monday in Guam due to the A/H1N1 flu virus.
So far, the island of Guam has 16 confirmed cases.
The Commonwealth of Northern Marianas (CNMI) also acknowledged having two confirmed cases of A/H1N1 and warned the public to take greater precaution.
In Saipan, Richard Brostrom, director of the Commonwealth Health Center, said a Japanese tourist and a 16-year-old local boy were the first confirmed cases of A/H1N1 in the CNMI.
The Japanese victim had since returned to Japan after being confined for seven days. He showed signs of being infected with A/H1N1 virus during his visit to Saipan.
The teenage boy, on the other hand, is already out of danger. No other details were provided about the victims.
