Bihar's first suspected case of swine flu was reported from Aurangabad town on Saturday, an official said.


Mohd Zubair, a resident of Pathantoli in Aurangabad, showed symptoms of swine flu and the doctor treating him referred him to the Patna Medical College and Hospital so that his samples could be taken and tested for swine flu, a source close to doctor said.

The patient had returned from Singapore two months ago. "He had regular high fever and running nose despite treatment," the source said.

Aurangabad town is about 150 km from the state capital.
