Singapore confirmed the country's first swine flu case Wednesday, a 22-year-old woman who reported symptoms after visiting New York. The woman said she developed a cough on her flight back to Singapore earlier this week, the health ministry said in a statement. She was in stable condition at the country's Communicable Disease Centre, the ministry said. The ministry said it has quarantined people who have been in close contact with the woman and is searching for passengers on the same flight from New York. The World Health Organization said Tuesday it has confirmed 12,954 cases worldwide of the H1N1 virus and suspects swine flu in the deaths of 92 people.
