It is feared the flu could sweep through the area and kill many more Yanomami as the Indians have little resistance to introduced diseases.
About 32,000 Yanomami live in the Venezuela-Brazil border region and form the largest relatively isolated tribe in the Amazon.
I bet that the W.H.O. or its regional designee will attempt to vaccine the Yanomami tribe for the H1N1 after this recent outbreak.
