BANGKOK, June 27 — Thailand has registered its first two deaths linked to the Influenza A(H1N1) pandemic, Public Health Minister Witthaya Kaewparadai said today.

He said the first victim, a 42-year-old woman, died on June 20 while a 40-year-old male engineer from Chonburi died in a hospital in the capital earlier today.

Witthaya asked the public not to panic over the two deaths, saying the authorities were taking all measures to contain the virus, which first hit the country six weeks ago.

So far, Thailand has recorded 1,209 H1N1 cases, of which 1,190 patients have recovered while 16 remain in hospital. — Bernama
