(05-07 14:31)

The Secretary for Food and Health, Ko Wing-man, said on Wednesday that the government was seeking further information from mainland authorities about the first known human infection of the H5N6 strain of bird flu.
A 49-year-old man died in Sichuan after coming into contact with infected dead poultry.
Ko said he was hoping to learn more about the genome of the virus. He added that experts in Hong Kong would take part in the annual assembly of the World Health Organization in Geneva later this month. Ko said the government would review its prevention and control measures against bird flu following the assembly. --RTHK
