RIYADH - A Saudi student diagnosed with swine flu, the second case of the disease in the Kingdom, has been discharged from hospital after treatment, the health ministry said on Wednesday.
The man had flown from Washington to Jeddah and then on to Dammam in the Eastern Province on Sunday, SPA said.
It quoted the health ministry as saying the man was released from hospital in Dammam on Wednesday “in a good state of health.”
The ministry also said 22 people who had been in contact with the man after his arrival in Saudi Arabia had been given tests which proved negative. It was the country’s second case of infection by the A(H1N1) virus. The first was reported last Wednesday in a Filipina nurse. – Agencies
