Lithuania confirms first case of H1N1 flu
VILNIUS (Reuters) - Lithuania has confirmed its first case of the A (H1N1) flu virus, the Public Health Agency said Friday.
"The case was confirmed by the local AIDS center, which has appropriate agents for the test," Romualdas Sabaliauskas, head of the Center for Emergency Situations under the Ministry of Health, told Reuters.
"He is a sailor and was recently on a trip to India. He probably caught the flu in India," he said.
"The man is currently at home. He had a very mild flu with no hospitalization necessary." All three Baltic states now have confirmed cases of the new flu strain.
