SINGAPORE: Singapore’s health ministry has confirmed the country’s first influenza A (H1N1) case, a 22-year-old local woman who picked up the virus after visiting New York.
The ministry said in a statement Wednesday that the woman was in New York from May 14 to 24, and reported developing a cough on her flight back to Singapore earlier this week.
The ministry says it has quarantined people with whom the woman has been in close contact and is searching for passengers who were on the same flight from New York.-AP
