The Department of Health (DoH) confirmed the first case of A(H1N1) influenza in the Philippines Thursday night.

The first case is a 10-year-old Filipino female, who also visited Canada when she was in the United States. She showed symptoms – fever, cough, and sore throat – a day after her arrival and was rushed to a hospital. She is currently being treated at an undisclosed medical facility and is now only suffering from a sore throat.

The public is urged to observe proper hygiene, strengthen resistance and are advised to avoid going to crowded areas if the need is not urgent.
