The UAE's first case of swine flu has been
confirmed by the Ministry of Health after a man travelling from Canada
to Abu Dhabi tested positive.
Dr. Haneef Hassan, UAE Minister of Health,
said on Sunday night: "The patient, who arrived to the country on
a flight from Canada, is recovering now at a government hospital after
he has received a course of treatment. He will remain under observation
and treatment for 10 days as medically recommended. Passengers who were
on the same flight have not developed any H1N1 symptoms."
