Bird flu has become endemic in Hong Kong after its recent discovery in both local wild birds and chicken, the territory's health secretary said today.

"Since different kinds of wild birds and chickens have this virus, we can be quite sure that this virus is endemic in our birds," York Chow said.

"It's not just Hong Kong. This virus will exist in neighbouring areas - southern China as well as Hong Kong," he said.
