SINGAPORE: Singapore on Sunday confirmed its fifth case of the H1N1 virus.

The patient is a 22- year-old Singaporean who had travelled to the United States from May 13 to 28.

The Health Ministry (MOH) said she is currently being treated at the Communicable Disease Centre at Tan Tock Seng Hospital and is in a stable condition.

She returned from New York via Tokyo at about 11.30pm on Friday, on All Nippon Airways NH901 flight, seated at Row 36.

She had no fever and passed the thermal scanners at the airport.

She was met by her family who took her home in the family car.

She subsequently developed a fever at around 8am on Saturday.

Her mother drove her to the hospital's emergency department and she was admitted to the Communicable Disease Centre for further testing.

Laboratory results confirmed her infection at 8.05pm on the same day.

The Ministry said her symptoms are mild.

It has initiated tracing of her close contacts, who will be quarantined and provided with antiviral prophylaxis.

Passengers within rows 34 to 38 on All Nippon Airways NH901 on May 29, who have not been contacted by the Ministry, should call the MOH hotline at 1800-333 9999.
