ABU DHABI - An Indian old man who was already suffering from severe respiratory and lung infections and A(H1N1) - swine flu- has died to become the first person in the United Arab Emirates to succumb to the disease, announced the Health Ministry.

The 63-year old victim had gone too late to a hospital where he was diagnosed with the infections along with the A(H1N1) symptoms and was treated but passed away because of the progression of the disease, it said.

The Ministry called on the public to immediately go to a hospital or a clinic upon exhibiting any of the A(H1N1) flu symptoms.
