Serbia Montenegro

The country of Montenegro has reported a total of six cases of the H1N1 virus.  This has caused a fair amount of concern among Montenegrin officials.  


The Montenegrin Health Ministry stated that the new cases were confirmed by the Podgorica Clinical Center, the hospital in Pljevlje also confers with the Clinical Center's findings. 


The swine flu victims were thought to have contracted the virus through close personal contact with infected persons.  All of these said patients were thought to be in good health at the time of when they were thought to have contracted the flu. 


Most of the patients were able to be discharged within days of their diagnosis.  Montenegro is making plans to purchase enough of the vaccine before flu season starts, but they are also making plans to get enough antiviral medication in the event the flu spreads faster than is anticipated.
