Three Russian skaters infected with H1N1

3 Russian figure skaters found infected with A/H1N1 flu in Japan

Xinhua news reports that three Russian figure skaters who are in Japan for an ice show are infected with the A/H1N1 virus. The report states that Shizuka Arakawa, Nobunari Oda and Miki Ando, are taking part in the show but have not been in close contact with the three Russian skaters.

As a side note, I couldn't help but notice a typo in the first sentence of the news report which states that the Russians "have been confirmed infected with the new stain of influenza". It is also amusing that all other news sites reproduce the report as-is, along with the typo!
