CHINA'S Ministry of Health said Monday that a man in the southern coastal province of Guangdong who returned home on May 15 from a tour in the United States and Canada via the Republic of Korea and Hong Kong was suspected of having caught the A/H1N1 influenza.

En route from Hong Kong to Guangdong by train T810, he displayed symptoms such as a fever, and he had an elevated temperature upon arrival. He was sent to a hospital in Guangzhou and put into quarantine. The ministry said he was currently in stable condition.
