    Possible swine flu case reported in S. Korea

    SEOUL, April 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korea has spotted a suspected case of swine flu among its nationals who just returned from a trip to Mexico, a government official said Tuesday.

    "A South Korean citizen who recently returned from a trip to Mexico has been classified as a possible swine flu patient," the official said, asking not to be identified.

    Governments worldwide are struggling to stem the spread of the highly infectious virus, which has reportedly killed nearly 150 people in Mexico alone. Swine influenza causes symptoms similar to those of regular flu, such as coughing and fever.

      • Govít Bolsters Quarantines Due to Swine Flu

      The government has bolstered emergency quarantine measures against a fast-spreading swine flu outbreak.

      In a contingency meeting Monday, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) decided to double their reserves of the antiviral drug Tamiflu from the current two-point-five million doses to five million.

      The government has designated six hospitals to prepare a total of 200 beds in isolation wards for any suspected cases of the deadly flu.

      The agency says there is a possibility of infection as between seven- and ten-thousand people who entered the nation from Los Angeles and Texas on Friday may have been exposed.

      The Incheon Airport National Quarantine Station has placed fever screening cameras to monitor entrants displaying swine flu symptoms.

      Symptoms of the illness include a fever of more than nearly 38 degrees Celsius, body aches, coughing, a sore throat, respiratory congestion and, in some cases, vomiting and diarrhea.http://english.kbs.co.kr/News/News/N...No=63102&id=Dm
