On the 4th May, I was involved in handling 31 year old gentleman who came to our Emergency Dept. with fever, sorethroat and Shortness of breath after 3 days returned from a visit to US. The fact that he visited US from 24th April 2009 to 1st May enough for us to suspect him of possibility of H1N1 infection. We alert Sarawak General Hospital about the case and he was rushed to Isolation Ward specifically prepared for H1N1 infection suspect case.
All of us who were working and has contact with the man was instructed by Ministry of Health to be on home quarantine until the blood test result which was sent to IMR KL ready. So yesterday 5th May, I have to stay at home.
