The Ministry of Public Health has confirmed that one of the suspected cases of swine flu in Valencia has been confirmed, thus becoming the second confirmed victim in Spain.
The 24-year-old man is in La Fe hospital and travelled to the Riviera Maya in the same group at the other confirmed patient in Almansa.
Doctors say that although the patient is infected with the A/H1N1 virus, it is very weak and, as in the case of the Almansa patient, could be discharged from hospital within a few hours
The other 11 members of the same group, a party of students from Valencia University, were dismissed yesterday.
COSTA CASES DISCOUNTED
Three other suspect cases in the Valencia region - another in Valencia, one in Torrevieja and one in San Juan de Alicante - have been discounted.
