CNTO – China’s Bird Flu and Sichuan Earthquake / 中国禽流感和四川地震​情况

关于禽流感和四川地震情况的信息

1.自今年3月出现H7N9疫情以来,中国政府一直在与世界卫生组织积极合作,控制疫情并保持信息透明。目前世界卫生组织尚不建议因H7N9禽流感限制旅游,中国政府包括国家旅游局未发布来华旅游的任何警告。

2.4月20日,中国四川雅安地区发生7.0级地震,尽管震级较高,但目前各界正在及时有效的组织抗震救灾。四川省雅安市芦山县距省会成都市有一个半小时车程,成都市距北京市有两个多小时的航程。地震不影响外国游客常规前往的主要旅游省份及城市。目前成都及周边的旅游景点景区和四川绝大部分的旅游设施和接待均未受到影响。因此,除不建议大家前往雅安地区外,无需对赴华旅游产生任何不必要的担忧。
