A 4-year-old Saudi Arabian boy was confirmed Sunday to be suffering from the swine flu virus A (H1N1) in Hong Kong.

The boy had initially been suspected of suffering a severe respiratory disease associated with a new type of coronavirus, according to the Center for Health Protection Monday.

The Information Services Department Sunday said the boy, who was visiting Hong Kong with his father, had a fever, cough and nausea when he arrived at hospital and was placed in isolation Sunday.

Two days earlier his father also had a fever, but quickly recovered.
