For a while it seemed that the swine flu bug was going to bypass Croatia. After a scare last month in which a patient falsely tested positive for the virus, it’s now been confirmed that there are three swine flu cases in Croatia. The first case was announced last week and involved a Croatian woman from Split who had recently returned from Australia. Now there’s another Australian in Karlovac and a Brit in Zagreb that have come down with the malady. All three cases are mild and all are under treatment. The Health Minister claims to be fully prepared in case of a pandemic.
