Poultry meeting to be held

June 05, 2016

An inter-departmental meeting will be held tomorrow to determine how long live poultry sales should be suspended.


Secretary for Food & Health Dr Ko Wing-man said today the Government is very concerned about the finding of the H7N9 virus in a sample gathered from a market stall in Tuen Mun.


Government departments are gathering more information to trace the source of the virus.


Experts will make a risk assessment based on information gathered at the meeting to determine the way forward, including whether to slaughter live poultry at Cheung Sha Wan Temporary Wholesale Poultry Market, he added.
