Bahrain Health Authorities Fight Swine Flu

Bahrain health authorities are searching for up to ten passengers who may have been infected with the swine flu virus.  The passengers sat near a 21 year old Bahraini student who was infected after flying home from New York on Friday.  He is Bahrain’s first swine flu victim. Around 80 students who attended the same university as patient are also being tested because they all attended the same graduation ceremony in the US. 

The Bahrain Health Ministry public relations director said the airline must help them find the passengers who may have been seated near the patient.  His immediate family and former roommates who flew home with him were tested and all were negative.
