Mystery Chinese Bird Flu Case Worries Hong Kong
Hong Kong authorities are concerned about a bird flu case in Shenzhen, and are considering a ban on poultry imports from mainland China.

A 31-year-old man was suspected of having contracted the deadly H5N1 virus in Shenzhen, which is located right across the border from Hong Kong.

'We are very concerned about this bird flu case in Shenzhen (as the patient) didn't make any contacts with poultry and birds,' [Health Secretary York] Chow said.
