This currently brings the total number of cases in country to eight, whilst the total number of confirmed cases worldwide, in 82 countries, has reached 23,382 and the number of deaths to 146, with another suspected 77 suspected.

As health authorities intensify their preventative measures in public gathering locales, such as schools, factories and other crowded locations, concerned sources, including Public Health Minister Witthaya Kaewparadai, are reported to be dissatisfied with the efficacy of thermal scanning at Thailand?s main airports, as one of the human-to-human infectees slipped through the net.

The development came as the number of flu cases increased to eight in less than a month. The ministry has currently screened 404,134 passengers, particulry from the high risk countries like Mexico, the US, Canada, Spain and the UK, at Suvarnabhumi since April 27.

A 19-year-old man from northern Thailand was the first domestic Thai who contracted the A(H1N1) virus in country. Apparently, his mother was the ?guilty party?. Both she and the man?s father contracted the virus whilst visiting the from one of his parents, both of whom had been infected during a recent trip to the United States, according to Public Health Minister, Witthaya Keawparadai. All three have apparently recovered. These represented the 5th 6th, and 7th cases in Thailand.

The 8th case of swine flu in Thailand from a patient who had travelled abroad was confirmed earlier Thursday. She was a 20-year-old Thai woman who returned from the US on June 1, was hospitalised the next day and is continuing to receive treatment. The Health Ministry has apparently intensified its flu prevention plans to deal with domestic infections, but remains concerned about the students returning from abroad at the end of the school holidays.

The new infection has caused the health authorities to raise the national flu outbreak status from level A, where where there had been human-to-human transmission inside the Kingdom and downgrade cases where patients had been infected abroad, to level B.
