New Orleans Mayor Quarantined
Posted on Jun 7, 2009
For many, swine flu is proving to be more of an inconvenience than a pandemic. One of them is Ray Nagin, who has been quarantined by the Chinese government after traveling on a plane with someone experiencing swine flu symptoms.
Nagin flew on a plane that also carried a passenger who is being treated for symptoms suspected to be from the virus, commonly known as swine flu, the mayor’s office said in a statement.
Nagin, his wife and a member of his security detail have been quarantined in Shanghai, though all three remain symptom free, the statement said.
