Laboratory tests collected from a hospital in Olsztyn showed that a woman in the city is ill with the AH1N1 swine flu, a sanitary inspector from the Warmia and Mazury region, Bożena Najda, told the PAP news agency on Thursday.
Najda said the woman saw a general practitioner, complaining of “typical flu symptoms”.
According to Najda, the detection of swine flu in Olsztyn should not arouse anxiety or panic.
“This virus has been circulating for about five years," she said, adding that this particular strain is present in this year’s flu vaccines. (rg/pk)
