Thailand Another red-shirt protester believed to have come down with H1N1

Via The Nation:

" A lab test will today confirm whether another red-shirt protester has come down with the type-A (H1N1) influenza virus.

As of yesterday, six red-shirt guards were being treated for the disease at the BMA General Hospital.

The hospital director Dr Pitchaya Nakwatchara revealed that another red-shirt protester had been admitted at his institution at 2am yesterday with a lung infection and symptoms that could be associated with the type-A (H1N1) influenza. The man afflicted is a 47-year-old Bangkok resident.

"We have put him through a lab test," Pitchaya said, adding that the result would be released today.

Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) spokesman Thanom Onkatephol yesterday expressed concern about red-shirt demonstrators exposing themselves to this potentially fatal disease."
