The Russians just told that there is H1N1, the bioflu, on this particular cruiser with 14 crewmembers sick and at leat one passanger. There are 2000 tourist on the ship, mostly Americans. Could somebody on the ATS find out about the mentioned cruise?
Fourteen cases of the H1N1 virus have been confirmed onboard a cruise liner that docked in Helsinki on Sunday. The Emerald Princess cruise liner docked in the capital for eight hours en route to St. Petersburg. According to the Russian Ria Novosti news agency, swine flu has been confirmed among 13 crew members and one passenger. Russian health officials say they have been quarantined on the vessel. They have been given the Tamiflu medication and do not need hospitalisation. All other passengers have undergone health checks and have left the ship in St. Petersburg. Most of the over 4,400 people on the ship, flying under the Bermudan flag, were Americans. Those on board included 3,243 passengers and 1,201 crew members.
