Amman-Health Ministry on Thursday denied a N1 (swine) flu-related woman death as media reports stated without verifying from competent reliable sources.

Jordan has not registered any N1 flu cases since 2006, the ministry’s statement affirmed.

Ministry Spokesperson Hatem Azrui underlined the said reports mixed N1 and seasonal flus, and added a women in her thirties, infected with the seasonal flu disease, was admitted to a private hospital in the capital to get medical treatment for respiratory lung complications.
