Honduras confirmed its first case of the A/H1N1 influenza on Thursday.

The case was in a nine-year-old girl who lives in a north town, San Pedro Sula, the Honduran government said.

Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, Health Minister Carlos Aguilar and the girl's parents confirmed the case at a press conference, after receiving the testing result from a laboratory in U.S. Atlanta.

The infected girl was diagnosed as possible case on May 11 and was self-quarantined and received treatment at home.

The girl's father Jonathan Cruz said he was not clear where and how his daughter had been infected.

He said the news was in some way worrying, but "it can be controlled."

Meanwhile, the president said the health ministry has 10,000 doses of antiviral drugs, donated by the Pan American Health Organization.

So far Honduras has dismissed 115 possible cases.
