China Scrambles to Prevent Major Bird Flu Pandemic

The Chinese authorities are scrambling to prevent an outbreak of bird flu after three reported cases in the last two weeks. 

Hundreds of millions of Chinese are preparing to travel home during Chinese New Year this weekend, and the authorities are concerned that the world's biggest human migration could help spread the disease further.
After not reporting a single human death from bird flu since 2003, the last two weeks have seen three cases in three separate provinces. The Agriculture Ministry said it was moving quickly to quarantine anyone who came into contact with the victims.
