TWO new A/H1N1 flu cases were confirmed on the Chinese mainland today, bringing its total number of the cases to 26.

The two new cases were a 22-year-old male in Fujian and a 23-year-old Chinese Venezuelan in Guangdong, health authorities of the two provinces said today.

The Fujian case, the fourth confirmed patient in the province, flew from New York to Hong Kong via Vancouver on Tuesday. He then flew to Fuzhou, provincial capital of Fujian on Thursday morning, the Fujian Health Department said.

He showed symptoms of fever and cough on Saturday and received treatment in the Lianjiang County Hospital. On Sunday, he was transferred to the Fuzhou Pulmonary Hospital.

The results of tests conducted by the Fuzhou city and Fujian provincial disease control and prevention centers confirmed he was positive for A/H1N1.

The new case in Guangdong -- a female college student-- left Venezuela Tuesday and flew to Guangzhou, Guangdong's capital, Wednesday via Paris, and her relative drove her home in Foshan City, the provincial health department said.

She took a rest at home after showing flu symptoms Thursday and was sent to Foshan No. 1 People's Hospital Friday.

Early yesterday, the woman was tested positive for A/H1N1 flu by the Foshan Center of Disease Control and Prevention. The Provincial Center of Disease Control and Prevention reexamined Saturday noon and the result was also positive.
