Of the eight cases, five of them were airline passengers arriving in Ho Chi Minh City and one landing in Hanoi, where they had returned from infected zones.
The two remaining cases had contracted the flu from contact with infected people, bringing the number of such cases to nine.
Although the virus is spreading easily from one person to another, no death has yet been reported.
Thirty-two people have recovered and been discharged from hospital, including 27 in the south, four in the north and one in the central region.
The remaining infected patients are being treated in hospitals, where their conditions are reported as stable.
On the same day, the People’s Committee in the central province of Thua Thien – Hue convened an urgent meeting to implement measures against the disease.
The province has recently reported three swine flu patients, including a 21-year-old woman, Nguyen Thi Thien, from Australia and two of her relatives.
Five people, including two relatives, who had close contact with the affected people have been quarantined in the Central Hue Hospital.
Health authorities are tracking 192 passengers who arrived in Vietnam on the same flight, VN254, as Ms. Thien on June 18.
