Six more A/H1N1 flu cases were confirmed on the Chinese mainland Friday, bringing the total number to 67.

In Guangdong Province, two women, two men and a 7-year-old boy were confirmed to have the virus, according to the provincial health administration.

Two are Chinese-Americans and the boy was a Chinese-Australian.

They arrived in the capital Guangzhou and Shenzhen city separately from Monday to Wednesday via flights from the United States or Australia and tested A/H1N1 positive Thursday.

Most of the people who had close contact with them had been quarantined.

Guangdong has reported 22 confirmed cases of the virus so far, and seven of them have recovered and left hospital.

A 18-year-old woman was tested A/H1N1 positive Friday in Shanghai, spokesman Chen Qiwei said, representing the municipal government.

The woman, Shanghai's eighth confirmed case, arrived in the city Thursday via a Continental Airlines flight CO087 from the United States.

The local health authorities had either quarantined some of the 31 people who had contact with the woman, or advised others to stay at home and report their conditions regularly.

In the eastern province of Fujian, 10 patients had been discharged from hospital as of Friday and four other confirmed cases were still being treated, the provincial health administration said.

So far, the Chinese mainland has registered 22 A/H1N1 patients in Guangdong, 14 in Beijing, 14 in Fujian, eight in Shanghai, two in Zhejiang Province, two in Hubei Province, one in Hunan Province, one in Shandong Province, one in Sichuan Province, one in Shanxi Province, and one in Henan Province.
