Four more people in Scotland are being treated as probable cases of influenza A(H1N1).
They are the wife of the man who tested positive for H1N1 earlier today and their three children. The 37-year-old man is currently in intensive care in Glasgow's Victoria Royal Infirmary and has underlying health issues as well as H1N1.
The three children attend Shawlands Academy and Annette Street Primary in Glasgow. A full risk assessment has been carried out and, as the children were not at school while unwell the schools will remain open.
However, this situation will be kept under review and parents will be given all appropriate advice. Public health staff will be on hand at both schools in the morning to offer advice to parents.
Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said:
"While this is clearly a difficult time for the family concerned, I would like to reassure people that the risk to the general public remains low.
"However it's important that we remain vigilant. Robust risk assessments have been undertaken with regard to both schools involved and the decision has been taken that the schools will remain open. However, the situation is being kept under close review."
