Bird Garden reopens after bird flu alert
The Bird Garden in Mong Kok, where samples from a stallholder's cages tested positive for the H5N1 bird flu virus, will reopen today after being closed for 21 days for inspections. The government will provide a one-off payment of HK$12,000 to each of the 69 stall owners in the garden and a month's rental waiver.26 Jul 2012 - 12:00am

Two-thirds of stall owners in Mong Kok's Bird Garden, closed for three weeks after a trace of deadly H5N1 bird flu was found in a stall, say they will ask the government for compensation for lost trade.
Each should be paid between HK$30,000 and HK$40,000, said Shek Kwok-keung, who heads a group of stall operators.8 Jul 2012 - 12:00am
Bird Garden in Mong Kok was yesterday closed for three weeks and more than 1,000 birds were slaughtered after traces of potentially deadly bird flu were found in a shop.
The H5N1 virus was detected in a swab sample collected last month from a bird cage holding an Oriental magpie robin, raising fears the disease could be passed to pet buyers.6 Jul 2012 - 12:00am
