Japan braces for H7N9 Bird Flu

Japan is bracing for a possible outbreak of deadly Bird Flu, which has spread across neighboring China.

The virulent H7N9 strain of Bird Flu has already killed dozens of people in China.

Japan's Health Ministry designated it as a disease requiring an emergency response.

That means patients will be seen by doctors at public expense.

Travelers suspected of catching the disease abroad, and who refuse inspection at quarantine stations, will face fines.
