Taipei, June 12 (CNA) Taiwan has raised the travel advisory to Shanghai one level higher after an additional H7N9 influenza case was reported there on Wednesday, the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) said on Friday.
The MAC said that in keeping with the suggestions by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), it upgraded the travel advisory to Shanghai to “alert.”
Besides Shanghai, Taiwan currently also has a level two alert for China’s Fujian, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang provinces. That means travelers to those areas should take a high degree of caution and adopt strong protective measures. [FULL STORY]
