35 confirmed as swine flu cases in Sichuan college

THE number of patients confirmed as having contracted H1N1 influenza rose to 35 today at a southwest China civil aviation college.

The health authorities have finished medical examination for 1,075 students and 126 teaching staff on the Qingyang campus of the Sichuan Southwest College of Civil Aviation based in Chengdu City, capital of Sichuan Province, the Sichuan Provincial Health Department said.

All the 35 patients were in stable condition, according to the Chengdu Infectious Disease Hospital where they were being treated.

Classes were suspended at the college yesterday after seven students were diagnosed as H1N1 patients. Classes started Sunday after the students moved to the Qingyang campus after nearly a month of military training in Qionglai City, the department said.

Students who developed symptoms and who have had close contact with the patients were put under medical observation.

The health and education departments started today to conduct medical checks against H1N1 influenza in schools and colleges across the province.
