From the WSJ’s avian flu news tracker:

Shanghai began screening international travelers for fevers or other symptoms of bird flu. All passengers leaving or entering the country via Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport will be screened for high temperatures using an infra-red camera and have to fill out a health declaration form, according to a government Web site. The form requires passengers to say if they have had close contact with poultry, birds, bird-flu patients or suspected cases over the past week and to declare whether they have symptoms such as a fever, coughing, or shortness of breath, the notice said. Passengers with temperatures exceeding 38 Celsius (100.4 Fahrenheit) would be further examined, it said. Travelers who had visited bird-flu affected areas or had contact with live birds or poultry would have to undergo treatment at a designated hospital, the official Xinhua News Agency said without elaborating.

The avian flu news tracker is the future of big stories, btw. When will the WSJ folks start an “elections ’06” news tracker?
