PHNOM PENH (FN), Feb. 20 — A man is suffering from the first attack by Swine Flu in many years in Cambodia and is currently in treatment at Cambodia-Russia Friendship hospital in Phnom Penh, said a Cambodian health official.

Minister of Health, Mam Bun Heng told the press on Feb.20, that Swine Flu, caused by F1N1flu virus, could be critical if the person that suffers from it has also a lung disease, and otherwise it should not be peculiar disease since it only causes a flu that is a little different from the normal flu. The Ministry is closely keeping track of the disease development now, he added.

Ministry’s Technical Director General and spokesperson, Ms Or Vanndyn, said H1N1 Swine Flu would be gone within one and two weeks and could be infectious through respiration and sneezing.
