The senior health official was Luo Huiming, director of the Guangdong Centre for Disease Control's Epidemic Disease Prevention and Cure Research Institute.

He said, "The weather has begun to get warmer and lowered the chances of the H5N1 virus surviving and being transmitted. Therefore the high-risk period for people catching the disease is over."

But Zhong Nanshan, a SARS expert and head of the Guangdong Research Institute for Respiratory Diseases said, "It is too early to make such a statement."
