Hong Kong: Quick test for H7N9 to be ready

Via The Standard(H7N9 watch) Quick test for H7 to be ready.
Health Secretary Ko Wing-man has said the government will introduce a quick diagnostic test for the H7 virus in imported and local poultry later this week, to try to prevent the spread of bird flu in Hong Kong. 
Speaking on an RTHK radio programme, Ko also said the government was not planning to issue travel alerts for parts of the mainland where H7N9 infections have been reported. 
He advised people travelling to affected areas to pay attention to personal hygiene, and not to come into contact with wild birds and poultry.
In H7N9-related business news, the Hang Seng index is falling; so are stocks in Shanghai
