China will use special charter flights to airlift from China dozens of Mexican nationals said to be affected by swine flu, the Wall Street Journal reported. According to a statement released on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website on Monday, the two countries were working out the details of the charter flights to Mexico. More than 70 Mexican citizens have been quarantined in China over suspected exposure to the H1N1 virus. However, only one 25-year-old Mexican man, currently in Hong Kong, has become ill with the disease in China thus far. Mexican officials have claimed that Mexican citizens were being held in China under “unacceptable conditions.” Chinese officials have said that the quarantine is “non-discriminative” and not targeted at Mexican citizens.
