China Sets Up Border Checks
North China's Hebei Province joined efforts with Beijing on Tuesday in launching a move to cut off all the possible spreading channels of the bird flu.
The outbreak of bird flu in central China's Hunan Province and east China's Anhui Province in late October has drawn much attention from the government of Hebei and Beijing.
To prevent and control the spread of the H5N1 virus, the government of the two places agreed to establish a joint checkup and prevention mechanism, carrying out a strict exam along the 10-kilometer border of Hebei and Beijing.
They had been closed for decades.
