TOKYO (AP) Public broadcaster NHK says Japan has confirmed three people with swine flu, the country's first cases.
NHK reported Saturday that the patients were passengers who arrived in Tokyo's Narita International Airport on a flight from Detroit the previous day. The report quoted the health ministry.
The three have been identified as two high school students and a teacher who had visited Canada on a school trip. They were quarantined after showing flu symptoms and tested positive in a primary test on board the plane, NHK said. They are recovering at a hospital near the airport.
