Growing transparency in China?

Not only is the Chinese premier touring the flu scene (see post below), but China Daily is also quoting from the Beijing Youth Daily on the need for transparency and open reporting if avian flu is to be stopped: Bird flu must be reported.

The Ministry of Health has issued an open warning by saying there is a chance bird flu could spread between human beings.

This demonstrates the power of a responsible government faced by a natural disaster.

With an increasing number of bird flu cases being reported throughout the world, there is no reason for us not to be on high alert.

Facing a possible outbreak of bird flu, the public has the right to be informed about the virus, given that information transparency serves as the key to conquering the disease.
