China reports first swine flu case

On May 12, 2009, Dr. Wenran Jiang's May 6th Toronto Star article "Hard Lessons of SARS Crisis Explain China's Tough Action" was quoted by the Australian on their news coverage on China's swift quarantine measures against the swine flu epidemic.

"This time around, Beijing is not taking any chances," as quoted by the Australian. "Although the virus did not originate in China, the authorities have been on high alert. Senior Chinese leaders have been on the case from the beginning, and the Chinese press has followed the flu story closely with a rather open attitude."
