Today at Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) in Cebu, Philippines, three persons were currently quarantined for possible infection of swine flu or influenza A(H1N1) virus.
A Cebuano couple and a British woman were under observations. The couple who traveled from Ireland to Hong Kong arrived at the Mactan Cebu International Airport on Cathay Pacific flight CX921 and was intercepted at noon yesterday after thermal scanning at the airport showed the man running a fever. The husband is 32 while the wife is 30 years old.They were seated together on the plane so the wife was also quarantined as a precautionary measure though she did not show any symptoms.
The British woman, on the other hand, admitted visiting Mexico and Hong Kong where cases of swine flu have been reported. She had been in Cebu for a week before she voluntarily showed up at the VSMMC hospital last Monday because she suspected she had the virus. The British woman,who is a 25 years or older, has reportedly developed a cough and cold but has no sign of fever.
