Mainland poultry imports will be tested for H7N9
bird flu using the more effective "serology" test starting tomorrow,
the food and health chief said.
Serological testing involves studying blood serum for antibodies.
Ko Wing-man did not say whether imports will be halted if any poultry
tests positive for the virus, which has so far infected 211 people in
the mainland and three in Hong Kong.
Ko said 30 samples from each
batch of mainland poultry will be tested and if any tests positive for
H7N9, the sample size will be increased by an additional 120 and DNA
tests carried out.
