Sailors, working for territorial shipping companies, are forbidden to buy exotic birds in foreign ports as well as to purchase poultry.
Primorye territorial poultry factories are taking preventive action against bird flu; among other things, such factories are now open to authorized personnel only.
Factory personnel is subjected to daily medical control since everyone understands perfectly well that a possible bird-flu outbreak would inevitably cause huge financial losses.
