Random quarantine if you travel to China?
CNN reports that travelers to China who exhibit signs of flu-like illness may encounter random quarantine. Why? Because of swine flu (H1N1)! So, if you have allergies when you land in China, you should be prepared for an interesting little adventure. According to this story, some children have been separated from their parents. I'm curious to see how summer travel plans get affected as swine flu continues to spread throughout the world. We're waiting for vaccines to appear on the market (many are being developed) and we're all hoping that these vaccines are effective and that they get distributed before the upcoming flu season.
