BANGKOK, May 12 — Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said Tuesday he is confident that the country can control the A/H1N1 flu outbreak.

Thailand is well prepared to eradicate the A/H1N1 flu, said Abhisit.

Meanwhile, the government has not covered up any information concerning the country's first two confirmed A/H1N1 flu patients, said Abhisit, adding his government will continue closely monitoring the A/H1N1 flu outbreak in the country.

Earlier Tuesday the Thai Public Health Ministry confirmed the first two A/H1N1 flu cases in the country.

However, the two patients have already recovered and will not spread the deadly flu disease to others. The two had just returned from Mexico, said the Health Ministry.

In a related development, in connection with Thailand's hosting of the world's youth weightlifting competition on May 14-29, Abhisit said the country will be able to contain the deadly disease.

It is estimated that over 1,000 foreign visitors, including the sport men and related staff will travel to Thailand for the weightlifting competition. (PNA/Xinhua) vcs/utb
