Special Report: World tackles A/H1N1 flu |

Health authorities have issued a guide to help pregnant women avoid catching the A/H1N1 virus.

Pregnant women are one of the groups most vulnerable to the virus. On the mainland, one out of seven deaths from the flu were pregnant women. The guide advises pregnant women and their family members to get vaccinated. Those planning to have a baby have been suggested to postpone their plans until the disease is no longer a threat in the country.
