4 more confirmed H1N1 from Zambales wedding

Philippines' confirmed H1N1 cases climb to 10

Four more people who attended a wedding party in Zambales, which was also attended by an influenza A(H1N1) virus-infected Taiwanese mother, have tested positive for the dreaded virus.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque said the new influenza A(H1N1) virus cases brought the number of confirmed cases in the Philippines to 10.

Duque said in a press briefing on Thursday that the four new cases include a 24-year-old mother, her one-year-old daughter; a 47-year-old male and a 13-year-old male.

He said the four new confirmed cases attended a wedding party in Zambales, which was attended by a Taiwanese mother and her daughter.

The two foreigners were tested positive for the dreaded virus upon their return to Taiwan.

Health authorities have yet to determine where the two Taiwanese nationals caught the virus.

On Wednesday, the health secretary announced that four people -- two children and two adults -- have been infected by the dreaded virus.

He said both children have a history of travel to Hong Kong and United States, while the two adults are "contacts of confirmed cases of Taiwan."

The Philippines' first two confirmed cases include a 10-year-old Filipino girl who travelled in the United States and Canada and a 50-year-old Filipina balikbayan from Chicago.

Duque said three of the confirmed cases have already recovered from the viral infection. abs-cbnNEWS.com
