 303 Million Yuan to Control Avian Flu in China
According to the authorities, China has collected 303 million yuan to control H7N9 avian flu.

China's Ministry of Finance (MOF) said Wednesday it has allocated 303 million yuan ($48.6 million) from the central coffers to better prevent human infections of the H7N9 avian flu, reported Xinhua.

The money will be used to subsidize projects aimed at monitoring cases of H7N9 infection, influenza-like illnesses, severe acute respiratory infection and unexplained pneumonia, the ministry said in a statement Wednesday.

In another move, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security has ordered authorities to allow medical insurance programmes to cover more medicine and services for H7N9-infected patients to reduce the financial burden on them.
