Myanmar confirmed the first case of influenza A/H1N1 on Saturday, with a girl aged 13 confirmed to have been infected with the flu, according to an evening broadcast of the state-run Radio Myanmar.

The girl, who came back from Singapore by flight No. 3K 585 on Friday afternoon, was first found with no such human flu when screened at the airport. But she coughed seriously when she attended the evening tutorial class on the same day and then she was taken to the Yangon General hospital at night.

She was confirmed by the hospital authorities that she had carried the virus.

All of her fellow students and her family members have been separated and put under medical watch.

The 91 other passengers, who traveled with the girl in the same flight, and people who have contacts with her are also being screened.

The girl traveled to Singapore with her family members on June 21 and returned to Yangon on Friday.

Myanmar is seeking more ways to scale up preventive measures against new influenza A/H1N1 pandemic before the first case was reported in the country.

The Ministry of Health has been carrying out surveillance work at the country's international airports, ports and border check points since April 25.
