Some quick action: 

"The Chinese city of Shanghai is temporarily closing its poultry markets due to the H7N9 bird flu outbreak, officials say.

A spokesman for the city authorities said the decision was taken on grounds of public safety.

The city has already begun a mass slaughter of poultry after the virus was discovered in pigeons at a market."

Will it be enough to stop this?
