At Least 160 Britons Held In Quarantine

AT least 160 Britons are being held in quarantine abroad because they are suspected of having the H1N1 flu virus, the United Kingdom Foreign Office said yesterday.

The Britons, a mixture of adults and children, were being held in China, Singapore, India and Egypt.

A group of 52 British schoolchildren and their teachers were quarantined in Beijing last weekend after four pupils were admitted to hospital infected with the swine-flu virus.

One remained in hospital in Beijing, while the other three were in hospital in Hangzhou, the Foreign Office said.
