Agricultural officers clad in protective clothing conducted a clean-up in Sha Lo Wan, Lantau Island, yesterday after a dead chicken found on the coast there last Saturday tested positive for H5 bird flu. They scoured the seashore and neighbouring villages but found no more chicken carcasses. Officers said no poultry farm was within 3 kilometres of where the carcass was found.
