Interestingly enough, this was posted beside another notice about how people aren’t allowed to tear up the grass to plant vegetable gardens or raise chickens.

  1. Wow, this was much more succinct than the pamphlets handed out in our area! Although to be fair the first Beijing case of H7N9 was in our neighbourhood. You missed out on the “fun” cartoons we got, too.

  2. Ha, yeah, we’re sort of in backwater Qingdao (but not for long at the rate they’re developing this district). This notice, and its typos, was just printed up by the neighborhood 物业 (which actually seems to do more than eat watermelon and drink tea, unlike our wuye in Tianjin). No bird flu in our area yet!

  3. useful 物业 is a miraculous thing indeed :) i’m really not worried about bird flu. i was in the middle of a swine flu outbreak in 2009 too, though, so maybe other people should be worried about living near me??
