Adjust font size:

Philippine health authorities reported 134 more cases of Influenza A/H1N1 on Friday, pushing the country's total to 861.

However, Health Secretary Francisco Duque said that all the newly-confirmed patients were "responding positively to their treatments." A total of 634 patients -- or 74 percent of the total-- have fully recovered since May 21, he added.

The new cases involved 60 males and 74 females, said the health chief. One hundred eighteen of the patients are Filipinos, and the remaining are foreigners.

Twenty of these cases have a history of travel to a country affected by the novel virus, he added.
