People from quarantined jet have flu

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York City mayor’s office says 10
people hospitalized after a large commercial jet arrived from Dubai have tested
positive for influenza.

Mayoral spokesman Eric Phillips tweeted on Thursday that
some tests came back inconclusive on other viruses and will be re-administered.
All 10 patients will be kept in the hospital as a precaution until the final
results come in.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
quarantined the double-decker Emirates aircraft holding 520 passengers
Wednesday so it could evaluate about 100 of them. Some had complained about
coughs, headaches, sore throats and fevers.
