US naval ship, crew checked for A(H1N1) in Subic

A US naval surveillance ship and its crew were quarantined and tested for flu-like symptoms upon arrival at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Zambales province, Saturday morning.

Information gathered by ABS-CBN News said USNS Impeccable, an ocean surveillance ship, arrived at the freeport zone around 10:30 a.m. It arrived at the freeport from Japan for bunkering and change of crew.

The ship was scheduled to leave the freeport on Monday morning.

Health workers at the freeport, led by Dr. Solomon Jacalne, subjected the vessel to quarantine, and each crew was screened for flu-like symptoms. The US navy crewmen, however, have been cleared.

Officials at the freeport said the screening was in accordance with the protocol ordered by the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority as a precautionary measure against the influenza A(H1N1) virus.

The United States remains the most infected country with nearly 18,000 cases. abs-cbnNEWS.com
