The Chinese mainland confirmed 90 new cases of the A/H1N1 influenza from 6 p.m. Monday to 6 p.m. Wednesday, putting the total at 1,444, the Ministry of Health said.
Among the newly confirmed, 57 were "imported cases." The other 33 were infected in the Chinese mainland, the ministry said.
Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province reported its first imported case Wednesday, said the ministry.
Among the patients, 1,197 have been cured and discharged from hospitals.
No fatal or critical cases of the influenza have been reported on the Chinese mainland so far, but a patient in Hangzhou of Zhejiang Province reportedly died of electrocution caused by leakage of electricity from the electrical circuits in her ward lavatory on July 1.
