Malaysia : Govt urged to install screening machines at airports

Article via The Borneo Post :

Moyog assemblyman Terrence Siambun has proposed that the government installed screening machines at all entry points to the state, especially at airports.

The proposal was made following the detection of a Chinese woman having the Avian

Influenza A (H7N9) virus when she and a group of Chinese tourists were visiting Sabah.

“Although the Health Ministry has assured that this type of bird flu can only spread to humans

from infected poultry and the possibility of human to human infection is very rare, we should be 

more careful. I believe prevention if better than cure.

“It is important to increase the security system, especially at the airport to avoid any unwanted

threats such as the H7N9 to enter the country,” Siambun said yesterday.

He said the screening machines at the airport should be permanent, not only when the tourists 

had entered the country."
