Bamrasnaradura Institute director Dr Preecha Tantanathip said however that the three remaining students who suffered symptoms of common influenza would remain in hospital for the time being even though they are recovering well.

Bamrasnaradura Institute specialises in treating infectious diseases and upon their arrival from Mexico, the 14 students and teachers were admitted there for observation and for checks to determine whether they were infected with the deadly virus or not.

Test results confirmed they are all clear of the virus, including the three students who had flu-like symptoms. One girl student suffered a fever while two others – one girl and one boy – had coughs, a sore throat and other typical flu symptoms.

As a precaution, all three were seperated and put under close observation in negative pressure rooms.

The latest lab test results affirmed that the three students have nothing more than common influenza and they are recovering well.

Dr. Preecha confirmed the three would stay at the hospital for the time being until they are fully recovered before being discharged.

The other 11 students and teachers from the group will go home today, he said. (TNA)
