Bird garden reopens
(07-26 11:02)

The Yuen Po Street Bird Garden in Mong Kok reopened today, after closing since July 5, following the detection of the H5N1 avian influenza virus in a swab sample collected from a bird cage holding Oriental magpie robins at a pet bird shop.
Some shop owners said the 21-day closure has caused huge losses. They said they have followed the guideline to clean up shops every day.
The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department will give each of the 69 affected shops an allowance of HK$12,000, while waiving rents for one month.
