China quarantines New Orleans mayor, wife over flu

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is feeling well
after he and his wife were quarantined in China because a passenger
on their flight exhibited flu-like symptoms.
Nagin's office said Sunday the couple and a security guard were
quarantined at a hotel in Shanghai as a precaution and were
exhibiting no swine flu symptoms.
Nagin's spokeswoman Ceeon Quiett (SAY'-on Quiet) told The
Times-Picayune that the three are "being treated with utmost
courtesy by Chinese officials."
The newspaper's Monday edition quoted Quiett as saying Nagin was
feeling well.
Nagin left Friday for an economic development trip.
Quiett said Chinese authorities quarantined people who sat near
a passenger on the flight from Newark, N.J., after the passenger
showed symptoms of an influenza-like illness.
