Health Secretary Confirms A(H1N1) is in RP

A (H1N1) virus is now in the Philippines after the health secretary Francisco Duque III has confirmed that a girl who just came to the Philippines from the United States last May 18 must’ve brought the new dreaded disease to the RP.

In a press statement which I read today with the reference of a friend in the Philippine online society, the message told me of a Philippine Daily Inquirer news about the case.

You can read more of the details of the said news about the first ever case of A(H1N1) in the Philippines at Inquirer.Net. Meanwhile, everybody is urged to treat the case as a serious warning for people to take extra precautions.

The health department is doing everything to quarantine the said people who were with the family of the first case and find them as soon as possible for checkup.
