New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin quarantined in Shanghai

Controversial New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin is the latest to fall victim to the worldwide Swine Flu H1N1 panic.

Ray “chocolate city” Nagin, his wife and a security guard traveling with the pair remain quarantined in Shanghai after traveling on a flight along with a passenger suspected of carrying the virus. Although Nagin and his entourage are currently asymptomatic, they are being held as a precaution.


Nagin was in Shanghai as part of an economic development trip. His next stop was scheduled to be in Australia to discuss climate change and sustainable building, but plans are currently under review due to the unscheduled delay. There is no word on the suspected duration of the quarantine.
