  • ITALY: ANOTHER IMPORTED CASE IN NEIGHBORING PADUA'S TOWN (July 16, 2009)

    Since the news is available on the web only for the paid subscribers of the daily newspaper 'il Mattino di Padova' I reproduced the page below, for readers' reference.

    In summary:

    A 21 year old male resident in the Cittadella town neighbors returned from a trip to Greece on July 12, 2009.

    He stayed for some days at an holiday resort in Mykonos.

    On July 14, he started to suffer for some symptoms. He was subsequently referred to Padua hospital where he was hospitalized in Infectious Diseases Department; he tested positive for pandemic H1N1 2009 virus.

    Currently, the man is recovering at home.

    The source of his infection may be linked to air travel instead to local acquisition at holiday resort, according Padua infectious diseases experts.

    Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan maid tested positive for swine flu is recovering well at hospital; all people in contact with the woman are under surveillance and daily requested for symptoms. The two children she cared remain quarantined at their home with parents. Their symptoms are so far mild.

    According to director-general of Padua health agency the number of suspected cases during the last seven days is 15, none confirmed to date; further investigations are ongoing. Of the seven confirmed H1N1 positive cases, six are recovering at home, while one is currently in hospital because unable to be cared at home (not for the severity of illness).

    Among the confirmed cases: two girl of respectively 10 and 12 years old returned to Padua, and residents at Hong Kong; a 29 year old woman returned from Canada; a 28 year old Sri Lanka national; and a 21 year old male returned from Greece.
