Results Negative for Five Suspected Cases of AH1N1

As previously reported, there were five possible cases of H1N1 in Guatemala and tests were being analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Vice-President Rafael Espada reported today that all five cases turned out negative for H1N1 and results are still pending on identification of influenza type A.

Thus far, the only positive case is an 11 year old girl who returned from Mexico about 10 days ago.

Espada added that border crossings and La Aurora International Airport are now equipped with thermal imagers to precisely measure the body temperatures of people passing through.
