Three other Slovak tourists who were visited by Slovak regional public health officers on May 4 do not have flu symptoms either. The three tourists with mild fevers, two Bratislava residents and one Nitra resident, had no actual flu symptoms after their return from Mexico and they are already at home, Čižmáriková added.
