PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, May 4, 2009 - The Caribbean Epidemiology Centre (CAREC) has reported that all the specimens sent by regional countries to be tested for swine flu - which is now being referred to as influenza A (H1N1) - have all tested negative for the virus.

"There have been no confirmed cases of influenza A (H1N1) in any CAREC member countries. Specimens are being received from possible suspected cases. Thus far all tests have been negative for influenza A (H1N1)," the Trinidad-based centre said on its website over the weekend.
