Tests carried out on six people in Belgium with suspected cases of swine flu turned out negative, the inter-ministerial influenza committee said.

BRUSSELS - "The analyses carried out by the Institute of Public Health confirmed last night that all the cases are negative and none of these people has the Mexican flu," the government committee said in a statement.

Among the six new suspected cases -- three adults and three children -- four people had returned from Mexico, one from the United States and one from Argentina.

The Belgian government has advised citizens against travelling to affected areas in Mexico and the United States, the countries with the most confirmed cases.
