Updated On: Jun 28, 2009

The H1N1 disease is a big and a severe problem in Thailand as 80 more cases have been diagnosed with this disease in the capital city of Bangkok this week.

Ministry Permanent Secretary Dr Prat Boonyavongvirot said that 68 of the cases are primary and high school students and the rest are people who had come in contact with them. Dr Prat said none are in serious condition.

The situation in Thailand is so grave that over 1280 people have been contracted with this disease out of which 5 are hospitalised and 20 are reported dead, the first of such cases was reported on May 12 earlier this year giving  a fair idea of the rapid pace at which the disease is spreading.
