DOH: A(H1/N1) patient improving

MANILA, Philippines – The condition of the 10-year-old Filipino girl who was found positive for Influenza A(H1N1) – the country’s first case of the dreaded disease — is improving, an official of the Department of Health (DOH) said today.

“She no longer has fever and cough, only sore throat,” said Dr. Eric Tayag, chief of DOH's National Epidemiology Center, in a press conference this morning.

The girl arrived in the country last May 18, and eventually developed fever, cough and sore throat the next day. She is reportedly currently confined in an “undisclosed health facility.”
