SHANGHAI, April 6 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai authorities on
Saturday started banning all live poultry from other parts of the
country from entering the city after temporarily closing three markets
to battle the H7N9 bird flu.
The authorities will launch inspections on roads to prevent live
poultry from being transported into the city, said the Shanghai
Municipal Agricultural Commission.
The latest move came after six H7N9 bird flu cases, including four fatalities, were reported in the city.
