I heard the bird flu several weeks ago but wasn’t as worried as today. The Shanghai Morning Post reported the confirmed bird flu case in Guangxi and suspected cases in Hunan and Hubei. Tonight, the CCTV National News Program reported (Real video) the situation at 7:00 – 7:30 PM. All birds, ducks and chicken were killed in a three-km area around the place the cases were found.

Well done! I feel the society has become mature enough after the SARS crisis last April and May. They are skillful enough to handle this kind of situation. The media also responded quick enough to cover it. I am feeling much safer than I was in last Feb. Let’s wait and see the progress. Till now, Shanghai is still free of Bird Flu, according to local media.
