Confirmed! Regine Velasquez had Influenza A (H1N1) Virus

First of all, what is A (H1N1)Virus?

Influenza A(H1N1) virus is a subtype of influenzavirus A and the most common cause of influenza (flu) in humans. Some strains of H1N1 are endemic in humans and cause a small fraction of all influenza-like illness and a large fraction of all seasonal influenza. H1N1 strains caused roughly half of all human flu infections in 2006.[1] Other strains of H1N1 are endemic in pigs (swine influenza) and in birds (avian influenza).

In June 2009, WHO declared that flu due to a new strain of swine-origin H1N1 was responsible for the 2009 flu pandemic. This strain is commonly called "swine flu" by the public media.-Wikipedia

ABS-CBN News(Entertainment)

MANILA - Asia's Songbird, Regine Velasquez, tested positive for the influenza A(H1N1) virus but has already recovered, ABS-CBN News learned Thursday.

Velasquez said she got infected by the virus days before her much-awaited guesting in Charice's first major concert last June 27 at SMX Convention Center.

"Mabilis lang pero buti na lang hindi naman matinding strain. I found out I was already OK kasi sa dami ng nagpa-pa-checkup (na-delay yong result ng swab test)," she said.

Velasquez said she was ill for 10 days but had already recovered since she has a strong immunity system. She said she may have gotten the virus during one of her shows.

She said that during the quarantine period, she wore a mask so as not to infect people close to her.
Velasquez admitted that she was unaware of the A (H1N1) scare because of her hectic work schedule.

The Department of Health has recorded a total of 1,709 confirmed A (H1N1) cases in the Philippines as of June 27, 2009.
