Health Minister: Bulgaria Unable to Identify Swine Flu
Bulgarian Health Minister, Evgeni Zhelev, has stated that Bulgaria will not be able to identify swine flu if it arrives in the country.
Zhelev said that any people suspected to have the virus will be quarantined and tests from patients will be sent to the World Health Organization (WHO) for them to study and send back the results.
Zhelev continued that there is enough anti-flu medicines stock piled in Bulgaria to deal with a serious epidemic. He added that all the hospitals and medical centers have been given strict instructions of what to do in the case of a possible swine flu case.
"Local GPs will also be notified regarding the symptoms to look out for and all hospitals in Bulgaria have been put on red alert" Zhelev concluded.
