Fighting bird flu

Today's headlines are all about bird flu: how Avian Influenza is under control in China. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, the latest outbreak of bird flu, which killed 545 ducks and chickens in Central China's Hunan Province, has been stamped out.

In Beijing, a four-color warning system has been set up to fight against bird flu, and the government promises to monitor the people such as chicken farmers who could be first affected by a mutated bird flu virus.

On the pictured front page from Beijing Morning Post, a health worker disinfects a vehicle coming into the Shebu Township where a bird flu outbreak was reported in Xiangtan, Central China's Hunan Province.
