India : Woman tests A (H1N1) positive

Via The Hindu:

" A 29-year-old pregnant woman from Pollachi has tested positive for A (H1N1) influenza. Deputy Director of Health Services S. Senthilkumar, however, said on Saturday that it was not an indigenous case.

The woman, admitted to an isolation ward in a private hospital, was employed in Bangalore. She was not well and had complained of difficulty in breathing on arrival on April 24 from Bangalore, Dr. Senthilkumar said, quoting her family members.

“Our enquiry so far has not revealed any case in the family at Pollachi,” the official said. But, a thorough check would be made on Sunday. “We will check whether there was a history of contact,” he said. But, he was confident that she had not contracted the virus in Coimbatore."
