PostSubject: Mexico to start China flu airlift   Tue May 05, 2009 12:24 am




A Mexican plane has arrived in China to collect
dozens of Mexicans who have been quarantined because of fears they may
be infected with swine flu.


About 70 Mexicans were confined despite just one confirmed case of the virus.

The issue sparked a diplomatic row, with Mexico accusing China of
targeting its citizens unfairly, and Beijing saying it was a "purely
medical" issue.

Some 26 people have died of the virus in Mexico and more than 1,000 cases have been reported in 20 countries.

But just one fatality has been recorded outside of Mexico - a two-year-old Mexican boy who died in the US while on a visit.

The UN's World Health Organization says there has been no evidence
of widespread transmission between humans outside North America and
Mexico.
