Negros Oriental still AH1N1-free

Dumaguete City (30 June) -- Negros Oriental remains free from A(H1N1) infection as three patients who were placed under surveillance by health officials for possible A(H1N1) infection tested negative of said virus.

Dr. Socrates Villamor, provincial team leader of the Department of Health here, said that DOH received a copy of the official laboratory results of the swab samples taken from said patients from the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine (RITM).

The patients - two adults and one child were placed under tight watch by local health authorities after they exhibited flu-like symptoms.

Of the three, one adult and a child had history of travel to the United States and were confined to a local hospital. The third patient who was being treated at home, although having had no recent trips overseas, works in a job that entails close contact with other people.

Villamor said that all three have recovered and were doing well after receiving proper medication.

Health authorities reiterated their appeal to the public to stay calm as the A(H1N1) virus was treatable.

They also urged the public to continue practicing proper hygiene, such as frequent hand-washing and use of hand sanitizers, undertaking self-quarantine measures if needed, and continuous vigilance and surveillance of possible A(H1N1) cases in their respective communities.
