30 year old swine flu infected French woman was traveling onboard of a cruise, which was on a trip in the Aegean Sea. The ship, called Costa Eurora is traveling under the Italian flag and yesterday it arrived in Pieria port. The captains of the ship informed the Athenian port authorities right away that onboard there is a swine flu infected passenger.

Doctors from Pieria municipality arrived right away and took the young woman to the hospital in an ambulance. At the hospital, it became clear that the girl is suffering from breathing insufficiency. Staff from Pieria Medical Services boarded the ship, in order to examine all passengers and determined that no one else is invested with the H1N1 virus. The boyfriend of the woman is under observation because the 30 year old French girl is seriously ill and there is a possibility that she might have infected him. The ship arrived from the Ukrainian port Yalta and its next destination is Katakolo in Peloponnese. Costa Europa is carrying 1381 tourists and 599 crew members.

The municipality manager for Pieria Yannis Mihas said that "the Pieria municipality has four doctors, out of whom only two are servicing the port" and blamed the government that "it does not support Pieria with more staff and it does not finance the emergency cases."
