    Members of the public should remain vigilant and are reminded to take heed of the following preventive advice against avian influenza:

    • Cover the nose and mouth while sneezing or coughing, and hold the spit with a tissue and put it into a covered dustbin;
    • Avoid crowded places and contact with fever patients; and
    • Wear a mask when respiratory symptoms develop or when taking care of fever patients.
