Via English East Day, excerpt :

" LOCAL entry-exit quarantine authorities found four people with A-H1N1 influenza on a Liberian cargo ship last week. The ship, as well as the affected crew, has left the city, officials said yesterday.

On Thursday, the Waigao-qiao Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau received a report saying that three crew members on the cargo ship "Northern Juvenile" were suffering from fever and a cough, typical A-H1N1 symptoms. As soon as the ship docked, bureau officials boarded and checked crew members' temperatures.
