Hangzhou residents flock to alternatives to live chicken

The sale of live poultry has been banned in Hangzhou and many other cities in Zhejiang province, in an effort to stop the spread of H7N9 virus. This month alone 53 people have been infected with bird flu and 12 have died in the province. The ban on the sale of live chickens means millions of people will have to forego one of their favourite dishes during their Spring Festival feast.

While many home chefs say there’s nothing tastier than a just-butchered chicken, fresh-killed birds will be absent from Spring Festival feasts in Hangzhou this year. Cooks now have to settle for poultry that’s been properly and safely processed.

“We can buy frozen chicken or duck. Stewed duck in soy sauce is also ok.” A Hangzhou citizen said.

Although the H7N9 virus can only live in live poultry, many consumers are even shunning processed chicken.

“I am ok not to eat chicken. We can switch to sea food.”

The Hangzhou government has ordered all live poultry markets in urban centers to permanently close by July.

“It’s better to shut down if it’s really risky. (cut..please add motion effect) It doesn’t matter if we can’t eat chicken. Life is more important.” A Hangzhou citizen said.

So far this year, H7N9 has killed 20 people and infected 102 across the country. Health officials say there’s no evidence the disease is being spread human to human and they are not expecting a large-scale outbreak of the disease.
