    So far, 71 people infected with swine flu have been registered in Croatia, of whom 59 have contracted this type of influenza abroad, the Croatian National Institute of Public Health (HZJZ) stated on Wednesday.

    Most of the patients are young people aged between 20 and 30, however about a dozen children also suffered from this so-called novel flu, an official of the public health institute has said.

    He said that all of those patients have recovered.
    A new wave of H1N1 flu can be expected this autumn and winter.

    Croatia reported the first case of swine influenza on 3 July.
    The current H1N1 flu outbreak, declared a pandemic on June 11, has spread around the world since emerging in April and could eventually affect 2 billion people, according to estimates by the U.N. World Health Organisation.

    Swine flu incidence in Croatia is low.

    (AP) ZAGREB, Croatia - Croatian health authorities say about 30 high school students were infected with swine flu while on a trip to Spain.

    Ira Gjenero Margan, the head of the state-run Epidemiology Service, said Monday that samples of eight students were taken and seven have tested positive for swine flu. Others with the same symptoms are considered ill with the flu as well.

    The head of the Sibenik hospital, Zeljko Buric, says the students were given antiviral medicine. Only one was kept in the hospital.

    The group reported symptoms on Saturday after returning home to Sibenik, on the Croatian coast.

    Gjenero Margan says the illnesses bring Croatia to 36 confirmed swine flu cases.
