Singapore confirms first case of swine flu

SINGAPORE (AFP) – A 22-year-old Singaporean woman who returned from New York has tested positive for swine flu, in the city-state’s first confirmed case, the Ministry of Health said.

Singapore has confirmed its first case of influenza A(H1N1),” the ministry said in a statement.

It said the patient was being treated at a communicable disease centre and was in a stable condition.

The woman was in New York from May 14-24, returning on a Singapore Airlines flight on Tuesday, during which she developed a cough.

The ministry said all her “close contacts” will be quarantined and provided with antiviral medication.
