The number of infected people with the A/H1N1 flu in Chile has risen to 10, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said on Tuesday.

"The truth is that, as everybody knows is the country, the H1N1 flu virus landed in Chile ... There are 10 confirmed cases," Bachelet said after a meeting with organizations in charge of monitoring the sanitary emergency.

"From the confirmed cases in Chile, till now all of them have been light and they are having a positive evolution," Bachelet said while calling for the trust on the preventive and sanitary control measures in the country.

According to Bachelet, currently Chile is on a phase of small outbreaks, in local people, but since "many of these people have had a normal life, we are sure the number of cases can rise."

All the reported cases are related to an infected student from San Nicolas de Myrna School in Las Condes, and most of them are students.

The outbreak at the school made this and other schools suspend school activities for seven days as preventive measures.

Bachelet urged schools to avoid these kind of measures unless there are confirmed cases of the H1N1 flu among their students or unless the epidemiology experts say the contrary.
