Latvia Contracts Virus from all Around the World
As of the end of July, Latvia's total number of infected patients totaled two. The Center for Infectious Diseases indicated that the infected woman did not leave the country prior to getting ill. However, it was reported that the woman was in contact with a youth folk dancing group which just recently returned from Mexcio.
After the woman began showing symptoms of the flu, she was treated by doctors in the Jelgava Hospital. She was tested, and shortly after she was diagnosed with the flu. She was attended to with proper care and is said to be in good condition. The first patient to have come down with the swine flu is said to have been traveling from the United States and Canada where she is believed to have contracted the virus.
