Guyana to Supply Trinidad and Tobago with Swine-Flu Drugs

SAN JUAN – Guyana’s Health Ministry will supply Trinidad and Tobago with drugs to treat the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, a Guyanese official confirmed to EFE on Monday via telephone.

The ministry is acting on a request from Trinidad and Tobago, which faces a shortage of the needed medication, the official said.

The Health Ministry announced last Tuesday that it would subject relatives of the man diagnosed with Guyana’s first confirmed case of the H1N1 virus to monitoring for 21 days.

“Thus far, no one (in the patient’s family) has come down with the signs or symptoms of that particular viral infection,” Public Health Minister George Norton said in a statement.

The government said health surveillance has been tightened at Guyana’s main ports of entry: Cheddi Jagan International Airport and Ogle International Airport.

The Health Ministry has advised citizens to abstain from traveling to countries where the H1N1 virus is present, “unless it’s very necessary.”
