Alert Orange

MOH says one pending case tests negative for Influenza A

SINGAPORE : The Health Ministry has said the one pending case reported on Friday has tested negative for Influenza A. And so there are no human cases of H1N1 in Singapore.

The pandemic alert level remains at orange.

The Health Ministry is requesting those who stayed at Metropark Hotel in Hong Kong and who have since returned to Singapore to call MOH's hotline at 1800-3339999.

This will enable the ministry to advise them on monitoring their own health in light of the confirmed case in Hong Kong.

Travellers entering Singapore with a travel history to Mexico over the past seven days will be issued with a home quarantine order which will require them to be quarantined for seven days when they enter Singapore.

Those who can't be quarantined at their own residential homes will be quarantined at government chalets, such as Aloha Chalets at Loyang.

The home quarantine order takes effect on Monday.

So far, two Singaporeans who have returned from Mexico are on voluntary phone surveillance and they are well as of date.
