    Bill sets curbs on public in epidemics
    Kyodo
    The government is preparing a bill granting it the power to impose restrictions on outings, gatherings and other activities to curb outbreaks of avian flu and other highly virulent and contagious viruses.

    Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura said Tuesday the legislation is necessary to "enhance the effectiveness" of measures to cope with viruses outside the realm of the ordinary.

    The legislation would permit the government to declare an emergency situation and restrict activities when a new virus emerges, according to government officials.
