Hong Kong authorities approved the resumption of imports and sales of live poultry Thursday, following a three-week ban imposed after a dead chicken tested positive for a lethal strain of bird flu.

While downgrading its bird flu warning to "alert" from "serious," the government warned the city's residents to remain vigilant against the spread of bird flu and to take measures to ensure personal hygiene.
