Swine flu patient is recovering at hospital

SHANGHAI'S first confirmed swine flu patient is doing well at a local hospital and his temperature is now back to normal.

If all goes well, the 30-year-old Chinese man surnamed Shu will fully recover and leave the hospital in 10 days, his doctor, Zhang Zhiyong, told Xinmin Evening News.

Shu flew in from Australia on Saturday suffering from a fever. He was taken to a Pudong hospital for quarantine and diagnosis. He was transferred to the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center after he was suspected of having the A-H1N1 virus on Sunday morning.

He was later confirmed as Shanghai's first case of swine flu and the 11th on China's mainland.

Shu's close contacts - 24 passengers and seven air crew members - were placed in quarantine on Saturday night. So far, none has shown any flu symptom.
