SEOUL, May 28 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's health authorities confirmed one more case of A/H1N1 flu virus infection, raising the confirmed cases to 33.I don't know if the two Americans are English teachers, but we do know that the virus attacks E2 visa holders in disproportionate numbers.

South Korea has reported 33 cases of the A/H1N1 flu since the first case was confirmed in late April.
Three more cases of H1N1 influenza A were confirmed on 21 May and the total number of infected people rose to 33 in Korea.Xinhua and the Korean sources may be talking about different people who are infected, but it seems their facts don't exactly match.
