Ninety-five Chinese nationals brought home from Mexico on May 6 are no longer quarantined amid fears of the A/H1N1 virus, but three others remain under observation in Shanghai, local authorities said on Wednesday afternoon.

Among the 98 Chinese citizens and one medical expert, 95 have been confirmed healthy and were sent home as of 4:30 p.m., said Chen Qiwei, spokesman of Shanghai Municipal Government.

Of the three still under observation, one person's temperature was 37.2 degree Celsius, Chen said.

"I have been well-served during the quarantine," said Ding Jialei, one of the released travelers.

"The medical workers had been very kind and I felt moved," said Ding, who was studying in a Mexican university. She said she would go back to Mexico after the summer holiday.

"The flu is still spreading. The quarantine is necessary," said Lu Hongzhou, the medical expert back from Mexico and one of the released.

The 98 travelers were brought back to Shanghai on a charted plane May 6. All of the passengers were in normal condition.

China sent the flight to retrieve Chinese nationals under an agreement with Mexico, which has been battling the flu outbreak, to return each other's nationals.
