Beijing fully prepared for bird flu outbreak

    BEIJING, Oct. 26 (Xinhuanet) -- Beijing has set forth a four-level emergency scheme for the possible outbreak of influenza in the winter season, an official with Beijing Health Bureau said Wednesday.

    The draft scheme, which marks the four levels with the colors of blue, yellow, orange and red, is being examined by the Beijing municipal government, said Zhao Tao in charge of disease prevention and control under the bureau, at a press conference.

    If ratified, Beijing will issue the "blue" alarm when necessary, suspending the imports of animals and animal products from the flu-affected countries and impose people vaccination or border-entry restriction.

    When the "red" alarm is released, which indicates the outbreak of extremely serious flu, all schools, traffic ports and public entertainment sites must be closed, the official said.

    In light of the latest bird flu situation in several areas in China, Beijing has set up 49 monitoring stations across its territory.

    A blood serum checkup performed by the bureau on over 2,500 local residents showed that no one has been affected by the bird flu. Enditem
