The State news agency Antara reports Bali encountered its second suspected cases of "swine flu" or the H1N1 virus. The latest case involved a Japanese man, Kuri Akira, 50, who arrived on a flight from Osaka, Japan exhibiting a high fever, coughing and a sore throat. The man was immediately separated from the other passengers and taken to the isolation ward at Bali's Sanglah General Hospital for observation and testing to determine whether or not the man is actually contaminated with the H1N1 virus.
After one day's hospitalization, Bali health officials confirmed that the man tested negative for the H1N1 virus and released him from the hospital on Friday, May 29, 2009.
In early May, a Dutch woman arriving on a Malaysian Air flight from Amsterdam was isolated after landing in Bali with flu-like symptoms. After two day's hospitalization laboratory tests also revealed the woman not to be suffering from the dreaded H1N1 virus.
