Cuba's Public Health Ministry says that everyone that had contact with the toddler was also treated and dismissed, as well as the three Mexican students.
Official statistics say 44 countries have confirmed flu A H1N1 cases, so Cuba's Civil Defense keeps the alert phase activated.
That involves the Civil Aeronautics Institute, the Customs and the Tourism and Transportation Ministries, and means extreme vigilance at airports, ports and marinas for timely detection of any incoming case.
In addition, Angel Miguel Canadian, head of the MINSAP International Sanitary Control, talked of coordinated border control with primary health care services, meaning two-week sanitary screening of in-coming Cuban and foreign travellers.
The official also called the population to seek medical aid should on the appearance of any symptom: fever, dgh, nasal congestion and/or secretion, headache, vomiting and/or diarrhea.
