Resumo: We analyzed the 124 deaths reported in Portugal form flu pandemic. The estimated mortality rate was 1.17/100 000 population. 60% were males, the average age was 47.6 and 66.1% had at least one risk factor. Chronic lung and heart diseases were the most common risk factors. Viral pneumonia was the major cause of death. 11% of the deceased had no treatment with neuraminidase inhibitors and none was vaccinated against the pandemic strain of flu. Compared to average life expectancy, we estimated that 3859 years of potential life were lost. In the future, we should work on improved strategies for risk communication for health professionals and general public.
