The young woman who returned to Slovakia from New Jersey in the US via Germany who was infected with the novel flu virus was released from hospital in Bratislava on Monday, June 8, the SITA newswire reported.
Doctors released her after the risk of further infection was fully eliminated. The spokeswoman for the Health Ministry, Zuzana Čižmáriková,
told SITA that patients are not released until it is known that they are not infectious.
Two other patients with the novel flu virus in Slovakia, a 37-year old man and his eight-and-a-half month old infant are also back home from hospital. SITA
