A Malaysian mixed doubles badminton coach at the World Championships is suspected to have contracted the Influenza A(H1N1).

The coach, believed to be Jeremy Gan, arrived in Hyderabad several days ago was tested negative for the H1N1 initially.

However as he had yet to recover, he has been admitted to the Chest Hospital in Erragadda, about 10km from the Gawchibowli Stadium and results of his second test will be known later today.

Two Malaysian journalists who were to cover the World Champs did not make the trip as the employers felt that the H1N1 threat was serious enough to keep them home. Looks like the decision proved to be right.
