Of the new cases, 196 were confirmed in Portugal, 157 in Greece and 72 in Germany while other 19 cases were reported in other four European countries, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said in its daily situation report.

The cumulative number of confirmed cases of the A/H1N1 flu virus in the EU (European Union) and EFTA (European Free Trade Association) countries increased to 49,112, with 17,262 cases in Germany, 13,192 in Britain, 2,820 in Portugal, 2,058 in Italy and 1,996 in Greece, the ECDC said.
