Due to the woman’s compromised state of health, doctors carried out a caesarean section to save the baby. According to doctors, the baby is all right, with A(H1N1) virus negative test results. There are others who have contracted the virus and died in Slovakia but this is the first case where A(H1N1) was the primary cause of death. TASR
