Switzerland's health ministry says a woman has become the first to contract swine flu inside the country.
The ministry says the country's 13 previous cases were in travellers returning from abroad.
Officials in the western canton (state) of Vaud suspect the 29-year-old woman was infected by another person who had recently returned from the United States.
The health ministry said on Friday that travellers returning from the Dominican Republic, Chile, Panama, the United States, Mexico, Canada and the Australian state of Victoria should contact a doctor if they experience flu symptoms.
