    SANTIAGO, May 29 (Xinhua) -- The Chilean Health ministry reported on Friday 25 new cases of A/H1N1 flu, bringing the country's total confirmed infections to 224.

    The ministry said in a communique that the only two patients with grave symptoms are now in stable condition.

    Chile now has the most confirmed A/H1N1 flu cases in all South American countries.

    The Chilean Health Ministry said that the country might gradually loosen up sanitary controls at border crossings, seaports and airports, as the virus is already spreading in the country.

    It also stressed that the virus detected in the country has no difference from that detected elsewhere in the world, with the features of high transmission yet low lethality, and most cases so far confirmed are mild.

    Under such circumstances, a government panel of experts has decided not to introduce early winter vacations for schools in the country, the ministry noted.
