Singapore issues advisory for travellers from China's bird flu-hit provinces, 6 Apr 2013
Singapore's health ministry on Saturday issued an advisory for travellers returning from China's bird flu-hit provinces to look out for certain symptoms, though it fell short of advising against travelling to these provinces.
The ministry said that travellers who have gone to Shanghai, Anhui, Jiangsu and Zhejiang should look out for symptoms of respiratory illness, such as fever and cough.
They are advised to seek early medical attention if ill with such symptoms and inform doctors of their travel history.
