HK steps up measures against bird flu
(02-07 17:20)

Hong Kong's bird flu surveillance programme is being expanded to cover pneumonia patients who've recently visited areas where infected poultry have been found.
People with the condition will now be immediately isolated upon admission to hospital for rapid tests for the H7 bird flu virus strain.
The chief manager of the Hospital Authority's Infection, Emergency and Contingency team, Liu Shao Haei, said the move is in response to the increasing number of cases on the mainland. But he stressed that the risk of an outbreak locally is not high. --RTHK
