China said Thursday that no other cases of bird flu have been detected in Beijing and neighboring provinces after a woman died from the avian influenza in the capital. The Agricultural Ministry said in a notice on its Web site that authorities had investigated poultry in Beijing, the port city of Tianjin and neighboring Hebei province, but no other cases have been found. "Bird flu epidemic was not found in any of these three provinces and cities," it said. Inspectors have stepped up checks of poultry markets and slaughterhouses and have banned live poultry from entering the capital unless they are certified as safe after China's first bird flu death since February of last year.
