BANGKOK: Forty-one people have been confirmed of being infected with H1N1 influenza in northeastern Nakhon Ratchasima province since early June, the Ministry of Public Health said Wednesday.
Public Health Ministry Inspector General Kamron Chaisiri said six female and 35 male patients, including six hospital staff, have been admitted to Nakhon Ratchasima Rajanagarindra Psychiatric Hospital.
Xinhua news agency says initial investigation showed that the first flu victim was reported on June 12.
Kamron said all patients were given antiviral flu and none of them is in critical condition.
The hospital, however, has stopped admitting new patients until the situation is confirmed safe.
Health officials have sampled schools in the province but discovered no other cases of infection. -- BERNAMA
