A businessman in the central Anatolian city of Sivas died from swine flu over the weekend at the hospital where he was treated. Mustafa Atar, 39, had been at the hospital since Feb. 19. Sivas Cumhuriyet University Medical Faculty Hospital Chief Surgeon Professor Gökhan Gökçe said the patient had been admitted to hospital with chest pains and breathing difficulties. "His lungs were in very bad shape and so we immediately placed him in intensive care. We tested for H1N1 swine flu and isolated him. Test results from Ankara showed we were correct. Despite all our efforts, we couldn't save him," he said. Atar's uncle Kurban Çelik accused a private hospital in Sivas of failing to identify the disease in time. "They said it was a simple infection that would be treated with a few injections," he said, adding that they had transferred Atar to the training hospital after wasting about a week. Çelik said they would be filing a criminal complaint against the private hospital once they receive the final report.
