Avian flu: Chinese New Year Travel Advice

Travelling to China to celebrate the New Year? Avian flu: Chinese New Year Travel Advice

2017 is the Chinese year of the Rooster and starts on 28 January.

Human cases of avian (bird) flu are being reported in China, with more cases expected. Visitors to mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan should avoid exposure to wild birds and poultry. This includes staying away from live bird or animal markets and poultry farms. 

NaTHNaC and Public Health England are reminding travellers planning to celebrate in China how to protect themselves to ensure a safe and healthy trip. Find more information here: Avian flu advice for travellers going to China.
