Confirmed Negative for H1N1, Co-Pilot Discharged from Hospital

After being confirmed as not carrying the swine flu H1N1 virus, ES (39), an airline co-pilot, was on Saturday discharged from Hasan Sadikin Hospital where he had been treated as a suspected swine flu sufferer.
"Based on the results of examinations by the Central Health Research and Development Agency, ES has been declared as suffering only from the common flu, not from swine flu that is caused by the Type A H1N1 virus. So today he has been allowed to return home," the chief of the team of doctors in charge of special infectious diseases at the hospital, Dr Hadi Jusuf, told ANTARA here on Saturday.
Hadi said to monitor ES’s health condition, the hospital had asked his family to continue watching over his health. "ES was referred to the hospital by a doctor at the local Husein Sastranegara airport on Tuesday, the team’s spokesman," Dr Primal Soedjana, said.
He said before being admitted to the hospital with suspected swine flu symptoms, ES had often traveled abroad , including to Singapore and Malaysia. "His activities were marked by high mobility. He often traveled overseas and once had direct contact with a flu patient at one of the foreign airports," he said. "When he was examined he showed such symptoms as headache, running nose, sore throat, high fever and a quick heart beat."
