Bird Flu Situation in Hong Kong

The Ministry of Health is monitoring the situation in Hong Kong closely. While the risk to Singapore is very low at the moment, we would advise all travellers to Hong Kong to remain vigilant and adopt good hygiene practises:

  • Avoid direct contact with poultry, birds or their droppings, and if contact is made, wash hands thoroughly with soap and water;
  • Cook poultry and eggs thoroughly before eating;
  • Wash hands frequently;
  • Avoid crowded places and contact with sick people with fever;
  • Wear a mask when you have respiratory symptoms or are feeling unwell.

Please seek prompt medical attention if you’re returning from Hong Kong and develop fever and/or influenza-like illnesses.
