Switzerland has reported its first confirmed infection of the new swine flu virus, the official Swissinfo news website reported Thursday.

A young man, who has just returned from Mexico, has tested positive for the virus, a hospital in Baden, near Zurich, said in a statement.

The 19-year-old's condition is said not to be life threatening. He is stable and being treated with Tamiflu, the oral antiviral drug produced by Swiss pharmaceutical group Roche, Swissinfo reported.

More than 20 other people are being treated across Switzerland for suspected infection of the swine flu virus, Swiss health authorities said.

The Swiss government has activated a special task force aimed at "accelerating administrative processes" in the fight against the spread of the disease, Swissinfo said.
