BANGKOK, May 12 (Reuters) – Thailand confirmed its first case of the H1N1 flu on Tuesday, but the patient has recovered and there were no reports of more infections, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said.

The Public Health Ministry has scheduled a news conference for 2 p.m. (0700 GMT) to discuss the test results confirmed by the U.S.-based Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

“The returned lab result confirmed that it was the infection, but the person has recovered from it,” Abhisit told reporters.
