Unfortunately, this reminds me of the SARS episode that we suffered in Hong Kong ! I only hope that this time the Chinese Government tell us the truth.
Health authorities in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang say they have discovered two more cases of suspected human infections of the H7N9 Avian Flu Virus in the city of Hangzhou, the Beijing News newspaper reported on its Weibo social media page on Wednesday. If confirmed, the new cases would bring the total number of human infections in eastern China to nine.
How to avoid H7N9
Always ensure good personal hygiene, including washing your hands regularly.
Keep your home clean. Open windows or doors for frequent ventilation.
Ensure food hygiene and cleanliness in preparation and storage. Cook chicken, duck, eggs and other poultry thoroughly. Never eat raw poultry.
Wash the plank for the preparation of chicken / duck before preparing another dish, wash your hands after touching chicken or duck
Does not come into contact with poultry or live birds. Do not consume eggs with shells cracked or raw egg.
This is perhaps not very advise to go walking in live bird markets or wet markets or street markets and buy poultry.
Never wash or rinse raw chicken in the sink. You’ll splash germs around the kitchen and risk food poisoning or more
Wash hands before and during cooking.
Separate and discard offal. Wash any surfaces that may have come into contact with it.
