Live-poultry ban remains effective
(01-09 12:10)

The Secretary for Food and Health, Ko Wing-man, said on Thursday that the government had no immediate plan to lift the ban on live-poultry imports from farms in Shenzhen.
Hong Kong confirmed it's third case of H7N9 bird flu on Wednesday.
Ko said health officials are investigating how the 65-year-old man became infected.
The man said he walked past a wet market in Shenzhen two days before becoming ill.
Ko reminded people travelling to affected areas on the mainland to stay away from live poultry and wet markets. --RTHK
