A helpdesk for screening the pandemic A/H1N1 virus is being set up at the Tatopani Customs at the Nepal-China border, local media reported on Friday.

Dr. Senendra Raj Uprety, director of the Epidemiology and Disease Control Division, left Kathmandu for Tatopani to set up the helpdesk, myrepublica.com reported.

This will be fifth such helpdesk on Nepal's border. The earlier four have been set up along the border with India.

The initiative was taken after the flu was detected in five individuals in Kathmandu in the past week.

Meanwhile, Dr. Jitendra Man Shrestha, deputy director of the Avian Influenza Control Project, said that the sixth suspected case has not been confirmed yet.

A passenger on a Kathmandu-New Delhi flight was suspected of having the flu on Thursday. "The report will only come on Saturday, so we cannot confirm it today," Dr. Shrestha told the website.

"Since the World Health Organization has called it pandemic, we have to remain alert on this," he said, adding that the government would make a strategy according to severity of the disease in Nepal.
