Displaying symptoms of swine flu…

The British cruise ship Ocean Village 2 docked in Piraeus yesterday and the first people on board were doctors appointed by the prefecture to check passengers and crew members that were displaying symptoms of swine flu. Authorities said that 10 people on board were confirmed as having contracted the virus and that another 13 had been placed in isolation because they were also showing signs of the disease. It was also revealed yesterday that a 53-year-old Frenchman has been admitted to an intensive-care unit in a hospital in Rio, the Peloponnese, after developing swine flu while on holiday in Greece.
