A 9-year-old Melbourne boy who returned from United States on May 12 is one of the confirmed cases, Australian authorities said. Since the boy was not ill enough to be hospitalised he is reportedly recovering from home. His family have already been treated with the antiviral drug, Tamiflu but are being kept isolated at home.
Even though the health officials believe that the boy was not contagious when he travelled, all the passengers of that flight are being called back for testing as a precautionary step.
The other confirmed case of the flu is that of a Sydney woman who returned from the United States recently. She has been treated with Tamiflu.
