                    • Public health workers in Hong Kong remove culled hens and roosters from a wholesale poultry market on June 7. Authorities killed around 4,500 animals after bird feces tested positive for a deadly strain of the bird flu virus at another local market in May. The H7N9 virus was first found in animals and people in March 2013 on the mainland. The supply of live poultry within Hong Kong has been suspended since June 5 to prevent another outbreak. Ko Wing-man, secretary for food and health department, said trade would be resumed if test results from all samples collected at the 29 local chicken farms turned out to be negative
