Health-care professionals should pay special attention to patients who might have had contact with poultry, birds or their droppings in affected areas.

    The public should remain vigilant and take heed of the advice against avian influenza below:

    * Do not visit live poultry markets and farms. Avoid contact with poultry, birds and their droppings;
    * If contact has been made, thoroughly wash hands with soap;
    * Avoid entering areas where poultry may be slaughtered and contact with surfaces which might be contaminated by droppings of poultry or other animals;
    * Poultry and eggs should be thoroughly cooked before eating;

    * Avoid crowded places and contact with fever patients; and
    * Wear masks when respiratory symptoms develop or when taking care of fever patients.
