The Scotsman reports Mounting bird flu fears in China.
"The situation right now is extremely grave," said Jia Youling, China's chief veterinary officer. He warned that it was only a matter of time before China recorded its first human infection after reporting three outbreaks among its vast poultry flocks over the past two weeks.
Well, whether Dr. Jia is sitting on unreleased news about human cases, or simply being realistic, it's the kind of frank statement that will help prepare China and the world when the bad news does break.
Meanwhile, China Daily has a special section on avian flu, complete with a photo of Dr. Jia and a lot of good-news stories.
