The small eastern Caribbean island of Dominica has confirmed its first case of swine flu.
Health Minister John Fabien says the man has received treatment and is recovering. He urged islanders to remain vigilant and continue to take "personal hygiene measures."
Fabien said Monday samples from the man were sent for testing last week and came back positive from the Caribbean Epidemiology Center in Trinidad.
The patient reportedly had returned from a recent visit to the United States.
