Hong Kong: Mai Po Marshes Nature Reserve re-opens

Further to this post of 28 March 2006, Hong Kong Government announced late yesterday that Mai Po Nature Reserve re-opens, as of today:
"As there has not been any new case of birds infected with H5[N1] virus for the past 21 days, which is the World Organisation for Animal Health's standard of an avian influenza infection-free place, the Government has decided to re-open the Mai Po Nature Reserve to the public," a Government spokesman said.
This is good news. Cock-a-doodle-doo.

But what's with that World Organisation for Animal Health? A quick google unearths: OIE

Mai Po Nature Reserve: WWF Hong Kong
