H1N1 – Singapore’s first case
Stop press! Singappore has reported its first confirmed case of Influenza A H1N1. Its a 22-year old woman who just returned from New York last Friday, 22 May. She was reported to develop cough on her way back to Singapore. As she did not suffer from any fever, she passed by the thermal detector undetected at the airport. The same morning, she went to see her local GP on her cough but was sent to a hospital due to her travel history.
