Avian Flu - Precautions for News Staff

The dangers posed by avian flu and a possible global flu pandemic should be under active consideration by news organisations and news coverage staff around the world.

How can news teams cover flu outbreaks in relative safety? How might they avoid contamination of themselves and, on return to base, their newsrooms?

The topic was raised at the recent News Xchange broadcaster convention in Amsterdam and it appeared that few news organisations have given much thought to the practical problems involved.

INSI offers the following advice for news teams assigned to avian flu stories. We will return to the subject as warranted.

Any additional safety advice, from journalists and news crews with experience of covering avian flu outbreaks, is most welcome and will be passed on to colleagues around the world.
