The Chinese mainland reported its first suspected case of A(H1N1) Sunday and health authorities quarantined seven people who flew in from North America, raising fears of a possible outbreak.

A 30-year-old man surnamed Bao has tested positive for the H1N1 virus in Sichuan province but the Ministry of Health (MOH) has not confirmed the case. That may be because MOH is conducting further tests, an expert said.

Bao flew from St Louis in the US to Tokyo on Friday. He landed in Beijing from Tokyo on flight number NW029 on Saturday, and took the U8882 flight to Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province, the same day.

Hi Kiwi.

I don't think it's a big problem as the mortality rate is very small and not very contagious either. There are other diseases that have far higher mortality rates that we have forgotten about. The big problem is keeping this one contained while they try and develop a vaccine.

Now, what was it you were saying last year about coming to Chengdu for a visit?
