Georgia reported the first serious case of the H1N1 virus. An infected 61-year-old woman was taken to the Tbilisi Infectious Diseases Hospital Nov. 14, the National Disease Control Center said today.
The medicines took effect and the woman's condition has ameliorated, the doctors said.
She was infected from a Georgian citizen who arrived from Greece.
Georgia has reported 86 cases of the swine flu so far, the center informed. However, the center underscored that there is no reason for panic as all hospitals in the country are prepared to fight a flu epidemic, which by tradition breaks out in Georgia in late November-early December.
All virus-infected individuals are being treated at home.
