Thailand : Security guards suffer flu outbreak

Via Bangkok Post:

" The City Hall has warned of a fresh outbreak of type-A (H1N1) influenza at the UDD demonstration site after six red shirt guards were found to have been infected with the virus.

The six security guards, all males aged between 16 and 42, have been admitted to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration General Hospital, BMA spokesman Thanom Onketphon said yesterday.

Two are from Si Sa Ket province.

The other four are from Sukhothai, Chiang Mai, Ubon Ratchathani and Loei. They joined the demonstration led by the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship on March 12, the spokesman said.

Mr Thanom said the patients began feeling ill on April 21. Seven of them sought medical treatment at the General Hospital on Friday and doctors found six of them had been infected with the virus. The six have received antiviral medication and are in a stable condition."
