The Pacific island nation of Vanuatu has recorded its first two cases of influenza A/H1N1.

Vanuatu's Ministry of Health said on Wednesday that two children, both aged five from two separate communities in the capital of Port Vila, were found with the virus, the Pacnews reported.

The confirmation came from tests conducted in the World Health Organization (WHO) influenza reference laboratory in Melbourne after 65 samples were sent there.

"These two children were brought to the hospital with mild flu-like symptoms three weeks ago to Vila Central Hospital and throat swab samples were collected," it said.

"They have now totally recovered. No serious cases of sick people have been found in their families or in nearby communities," said the statement.
